Course Content


Evolve is a leadership development program for 50+ adults focused on leadership for the common good. Evolve strengthens your leadership skills, focuses your energies, and connects you with others who share your vision, interests, and passions.

Research suggests that you will be healthier and happier if you are mentally active, contributing to something bigger than yourself, and connected with other people. Evolve helps you do all those things.

Experienced leaders who have spent years developing their own leadership capacity share their expertise in the class. You and other participants will be co-creators in developing your knowledge and skills. Like anything else in life, you will get out of it what you put into it. We encourage you to immerse yourself in the opportunity to learn, engage, and lead.

Classes meet eight full days, from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Days scheduled vary by location. Check with the individual schools for details.
