Leadership Anchorage program gets ready for another year

Leadership Anchorage, a program within the Alaska Humanities Forum, is ready to begin another year of examining the essence of leadership, and where it exists in you. The nine-month seminar series starts its 14th year and is now accepting candidates. Leadership Anchorage seeks out emerging leaders from the community, including individuals, companies, nonprofit organizations, neighborhood groups and ethnic and cultural organizations. The goal is to find individuals ready to take the next step toward taking leadership roles in our community. The program is based on the premise that leadership comes from many corners of a community, and we all benefit when all of those interests have a place at the table of decision-making.

Through seminars, readings, guest speakers and reflection, participants gain a new perspective on what leadership is and where it comes from

The program also involves the study and practice of mentorship, and participants emerge from the program with mentoring relationships that will carry them forward. Everyone involved in the program will undertake a community service project designed to fulfill a specific community need.

Visit for application forms and more information.

If you're a community group, offer Leadership Anchorage a service project of yours that you'd like to see completed. Application forms are online for that, too.

Deadline for applications is Friday, Aug. 19.

For more information about the course, contact Larry Campbell, Leadership Anchorage director, at, or call (907) 887-9222.
