We serve nonprofit and civic agencies by proactively building a dedicated, lifelong network of engaged leaders.
MLP has a strong reputation, built on trust, with over 150 Agency Partners in the Greater San Antonio area. We positively impact our community by continually attracting successful, proven leaders as candidates to our Program. This vital and viable resource attracts more applicants than we can logistically accept.
Our selection committee reviews candidates based on established criteria and the needs of our Agency Partners to arrive at the maximum of 51 students per year. We select mature individuals from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Our curriculum focuses on providing new members a broad spectrum of insights into the strengths and challenges facing our communities. This “back stage pass” to San Antonio gives exclusive access to elected and appointed officials, provocative thought leaders, and industry influencers and experts. Each new member receives a specialized, fact-based context for understanding the many facets of our diverse community. After completing the program, graduates are prepared to be effective board members for nonprofit organizations and engaged leaders for life.
Our MLP Alumni Association (MLPAA) continues the education of our members with an annual series of presentations about contemporary topics. These ongoing events, seminars, and workshops solidify the already strong network of our 650+ like-hearted, diverse graduates.
