LC2 Class of 2017

LC alumni can extend experience,
impact through LC2 Fellows program  

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

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

    • The Class of 2017 is considering; "The First 2,000 Days of a Child's Life: Quality of Life, Health and Education."
    • The Class of 2016 tackled the theme: "For the love of cities: Making Cleveland all that and more ..." The Fellows challenged themselves 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. Details about their project will be announced soon.
    • The Class of 2015 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.
    • The Class of 2014 engaged in a project that capitalized on the renewed interest in 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 service launched to the public in May 2016.
    • The Class of 2013 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 inaugural class took on the issues of talent attraction and retention. The result?  Boomerang events in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington DC.
