Leadership San Jose is an annual cohort of 35 professionals from the business, nonprofit and public sectors. Over 10 months, the LSJ cohort engages in interactive monthly programs designed to inspire greater civic engagement. The class also completes a community-based project that gives back to San Jose by donating time and services to a regional non-profit.

Since 1990, more than 800 local business, nonprofit and public sector professionals have graduated from the LSJ Cohort Class. The group remains active through regular mixers and events.
