Many researchers believe that leadership is something that can be learned, taught and nurtured. In order to effectively cultivate the leadership potential of the young leaders engaged in this apprenticeship program, we will embrace James Kouzes and Barry Posner’s “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” to structure the curriculum. One of the instructors of this apprenticeship program is an alumnae of Leadership Pittsburgh, a program of Leadership Pittsburgh Inc., which effectively utilizes this important model to inspire and challenge the senior and influential regional leaders engaged in that experience.

Participants will be introduced to college students, faculty, local leaders and professionals from the nonprofit, academic and corporate sector to begin the all-important network leaders need to develop. The program will conclude with a leadership program or project developed by the students and the instructors. Wherever possible, the instructors will invite guest speakers and take students on site visits. The apprenticeship will also include in a project that will emphasize the elements of research, strategy and development, and then it will be presented at its conclusion.
