Spotlight on Green Foothills Leadership Program


The Green Foothills Leadership Program is set to begin its 9th cohort in January 2023. This program draws participants from San Mateo, Santa Clara, and San Benito Counties. It has helped more than 240 community leaders to clarify their goals and sharpen their advocacy skills related to environmental justice. After participants graduate from the 8-month training series, they can join an active alumni program for ongoing support. Alumni go on to advance initiatives for environmental conservation, justice, and inclusive public processes across multiple sectors. The 2023 program includes 10 participants from San Mateo County and includes interpretation for a small cohort of Spanish speakers. To learn more, go to
