The Emerging Leaders of DeKalb Program (ELD) is an immersive thought leadership program for motivated young professionals ages 25-34 who want to broaden their potential and grow their network through strategic civic engagement.
We want to develop the next generation of talented leaders and change agents to make DeKalb County a premier place to live, work and enjoy life.
ELD combines informative Program Days with our Thought Leadership Accelerator (TLA).
TLA provides a hands-on opportunity for class members to develop their leadership skills by working together to find solutions for real challenges facing DeKalb County.
Throughout the program you’ll collaborate with community leaders and county officials to exchange insights, seek practical applications and create positive change.
The tuition for Emerging Leaders of DeKalb is $1500. If you have any other questions or concerns about the program, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions.
