About Leadership Frisco

Leadership Frisco™  is a nine-month community leadership program sponsored by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. Each class starts with a team-building day and includes a full day each month dedicated to exploring the inner workings of Frisco’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, health services, and public safety. Members will also have the opportunity to learn about and practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community. Members of the program will also select and complete a class project during their year that benefits Frisco.

How to Apply

Applications for Class XXVI (2022/23) are now live! Applications are due no later than 5:00 PM (CST) on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Applications are reviewed by a selection committee. Due to the limited class size, all applicants cannot be accepted, and are encouraged to re-apply next year if not selected.

Both members of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and non-members can apply. (Tuition is discounted for Frisco Chamber members.) A limited number of scholarships are available. Many employers will cover the cost of tuition as staff or leadership development.

Late applications will not be accepted. Partial applications cannot be accepted. It may be helpful to answer survey questions in a word-processing program, and copy and paste responses into the application. Application Questions can be found here.

IMPORTANT:

Please read the Applications Instructions document prior to starting your application!

Reasons to Participate

  • Class members work in groups to complete a community service project. This requires everyone to practice project management skills, learn traits of effective teamwork, assess their individual strengths and weaknesses and use organizational and problem-solving skills.
  • Class members interact with one another and with instructors, facilitators, and speakers, increasing their network and making valuable connections with people from a variety of backgrounds and industries within our community.
  • Class members are exposed to a wide variety of perspectives about the community. Each class session focuses on a different topic, ranging from business ethics and nonprofits to diversity and education. This helps them understand our community better and the resources available, which contributes to job performance.
