The Leaders for Excellence and Public Service (LEAP) Mayors' Fellowship Program is a leadership development program for public officials, in partnership with San Miguel Corporation.
The program aims to equip them with the competencies of an ethical, empowering, and effective leaders. By building the capacities of leaders, the program hopes that this will translate into a better public service in their local government units.
The program provides leaders from different municipalities and provinces to share their different experiences and expertise on public service. This also provides them an avenue to learn anew about good governance for sustainable development, alleviating poverty incidence, intergenerational environmental programs and practices.
The program started after the application screening that which was conducted from December 2016 to February 2017. On July 14, 22 fellows were given recognition of graduation for their significant participation and completion of the program.
We highly salute leaders who continue learning and strive to serve better. Congratulations to our LEAP Mayors! Kaya Natin!
