Elevate Rapid City accepting applications for inaugural Elevate Leadership Institute

  • New innovative program focusing on leadership.
  • Open to people from across the region interested in growing as a leader.
  • Full day sessions once a month from September to May.
  • ELI graduates will advance their natural desire to serve, lead and inspire others to join them in achieving greater success.

Elevate Rapid City is excited to hold its first Leadership Institute class this fall and is accepting applications through July 15. The new program will be held from September 2021 to May 2022.

“The Elevate Leadership Institute (ELI) helps provide leaders the training they need today for the challenges the community and their organizations will face tomorrow. Anyone interested in taking a leadership position inside their company or holding a leadership position in the community will benefit from going through this new and innovative leadership program,” said Tom Johnson, president and CEO of Elevate Rapid City.

Elevate Rapid City spent the past year looking at Leadership Rapid City, a former decades-long community program, and developing a new leadership initiative taking into consideration feedback from some of the more than 1,000 graduates of LRC along with businesses who sent employees through the program. The new Elevate Leadership Institute is aimed at providing engaged citizens from across the region with the background, unique experience, and insights necessary to assume leadership positions in the community.

ELI is a $2,000 investment for the 2021-2022 program. Tuition includes all materials and meals for the duration of the program. Participants will be selected based on the application as well as in-person interviews.
