LC2 Fellows Program LC2 Class Page


Leadership Cleveland alumni of all years are invited to become LC2 Fellows. LC2 Fellows spend 10 months engaging in a project-based, outcome-driven civic engagement experience.  The mission of LC2 Fellows is to:

    • Facilitate long-term, positive, sustainable change in Cleveland
    • Achieve tangible results to address a compelling issue or opportunity in the civic realm
    • Create meaningful relationships among alumni from different LC classes to optimize their talents and strengths
    • Continue the civic education and involvement of LC alumni

LC2 Fellows 2016 will focus on the theme: "For the love of cities: Making Cleveland all that and more...". This challenge will ask the Fellows to consider how to make Cleveland inviting and welcoming to all so that it is a place where all can experience high quality of life.

In the past, look at what LC2 Fellows have accomplished.

    • The first class took on the issues of talent attraction and retention.  The result?  Boomerang events in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington DC.  
    • The second class committed to making an impact on education in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.  The result? Mentoring students at a CMSD investment school, an adopt-a-school initiative, and a "loaned executive" program that engages LC alumni with projects in support of the administration and leadership of the district.
    • The third class engaged in a project that capitalized on the renewed interest of waterfront development in downtown Cleveland.  The result?  A water taxi service to be run by the Cleveland Metroparks that goes up and down the Cuyahoga and out onto the lake.
    • The fourth class, last year's class, undertook the challenge of reimagining Collinwood High School. The result? Options for consideration for how to re-develop the Collinwood High School building and a process map for how to address similar situations with other school buildings.
