“I was born and raised in Gainesville. Prior to my experience with Leadership Gainesville, I thought I knew everything our town had to offer. LG opened up my eyes to how much I didn’t know I never knew. Leadership Gainesville took me on a 10-month journey that provided me with an experience like none other. I was introduced to a variety of impactful local organizations, I was able to meet and build relationships with some truly remarkable individuals and I learned many leadership skills that I could implement immediately into my everyday life to help improve all aspects of my job and personal relationships all around me. This experience ignited a desire to go beyond just living in this town to moving on to truly being an active participating member in the community. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and recommend it to any person looking to become more engaged with the Gainesville community.”
“Even having grown up in Gainesville, LG exposed me to things about our community that I no idea about. But most importantly, LG connected me to some lifelong friendships with exceptional people.”
“The Leadership Gainesville experience was incredible! It truly has changed my life. Leadership Gainesville opened my eyes to many great things we have in this community, as well as where there is opportunity for growth. I gained a wealth of knowledge on to how to lead myself and others into greatness! Every day I felt inspired.”
“I have lived in Gainesville since 2001, and my Leadership Gainesville (LG) experience was a great reminder that I have so much to learn about the place my family calls home.
I have absolutely no regrets on the investment of energy into LG. I applaud those that have paved the way and will seek others out to be future contributors – are you ready?”
“I knew LG would help me gain valuable insight into Gainesville, but I also gained a much better understanding of myself as a leader and of my team. I left each LG day inspired and connected with our community. Above all else, I met some amazing people that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. I have formed lasting friendships with these classmates and I’m a proud graduate of LG44!”
“The Leadership Gainesville experience is one that I will never forget and one that has truly changed my life. The educational leadership development curriculum blended throughout the mind-expanding community discovery activities has broadened my knowledge base, strengthened my emotional intelligence, and ignited my passion for community involvement and advocacy. The LG program is invaluable for anyone who wishes to better themselves, their business, and their community.”
