The Equal Voice Leadership Academy is a leadership development opportunity for engaged and high-potential volunteers and staff members of local community-based and nonprofit organizations.

Considered a national model for civic leadership development and leadership skill building, the Leadership Academy is offered annually to a select group of 15-20 community members.

During 6 months, through workshops and hands-on experience, participants learn about public policy and how to influence it.  By completing the program, they become part of a growing network of grassroots leaders. Their organizations benefit by increasing their capacity to engage and mobilize their constituency to advocate for equal opportunities and a better quality of life for all in Marin.
