Leadership San Francisco is an organization dedicated to educating and developing community trustees who will make a significant contribution to strengthen and transform our community.
LSF's core program develops future community leaders who are both knowledgeable about the city and concerned with its well-being. The program is a unique opportunity for participants to increase their understanding of the complex social and economic issues of San Francisco. Participants are exposed to the challenges facing San Francisco's leaders and learn how they--as individuals--may respond to those community concerns. Individuals selected to participate in LSF explore community trusteeship, the ambition to work for the common good and serve the primary needs of others by holding their community in trust. Becoming a community trustee is less a specific skill to be mastered than the acceptance and active pursuit of a new way of interacting with the community. It means purposely seeking a wider span of awareness.
