Miami’s Next Leaders’ Leadership Development Institute

The Institute is the formal leadership training course for Miami’s Next Leaders. Each year, through a highly competitive process, Miami’s Next Leaders selects young professionals with a demonstrated track record of progressive leadership in Miami to participate in its signature Leadership Development Institute.

Participants spend five weekends creating a deep network of allies and learning about issues affecting our community, all of which prepares them to initiate and bring about progressive change in our community. During Institute, participants partake in opportunities such as:

  • Actively learning from experts about communications, traditional and new media, political strategy, fundraising, and community engagement through dynamic workshops;

  • Diving into issues affecting Miami;

  • Identifying specific leadership goals and a personal plan of action to impact the community;

  • Collaborating with fellow participants on a fundraiser; and,

  • Receiving coaching from a mentor who will support them on their path to leadership development and personal growth.

The 2019 Institute will be held from January through May 2019.
