Our mission is developing and uniting community leaders. Every year we offer our flagship nine-month-long leadership training program. During the program, you are introduced to various community services and programs as you work collaboratively with 16-20 adults and high school students. The emphasis is on results and teamwork. The capstone to the class experience is the class project: doing something real to benefit the Manhattan Beach community.
Our Classes are held every other Monday (with some exceptions) from October through May. You can view this year’s Class Schedule HERE.
Classes are held on alternating Monday nights from 5:30PM – 8:30PM. However, once the Class is engaged in their project, some Monday meetings may be dropped as students may have committee meetings in their place.
LMB will have an Orientation/ Retreat on Oct. 29 and a 2-day retreat on Feb. 4-5. These retreats are very important to attend.
Although we hope that you will be able to attend all of the sessions and tours, we understand that you have a life and things do come up. We will also have alumni events which you will be invited to attend. Our first alumni event of this year will be on Sept. 28th.
We do allow up to two session absences, however, if you miss more than two sessions, at the Facilitator’s discretion you may not be able to graduate with your class or be dropped from the program altogether. It is possible to attend a session on zoom if necessary.
We are excited that you are interested in LMB. To begin the process, CLICK HERE to go to our Applications page.
