Connect Class Program
Our mission is to educate, engage and inspire our state’s top young leaders.
Leadership Florida Connect is the state’s only leadership program that spans industry boundaries and focuses solely on developing Florida’s existing and emerging leaders. Created in 2009 as a Leadership Florida® program, Connect has developed into the sought-after statewide institute for professionals ages 25 – 39. Leadership Florida Connect is comprised of five sessions over a nine-month period in different locations throughout our State. Each programming session focuses on key issues and opportunities that are specific to Florida while intertwining leadership skills and development. Connect selects a class of diverse leaders to participate in programming and experiences with the goal of becoming educated, engaged, and inspired to make Florida a better place while forming lifetime connections and bonds among classmates.
