What is GTL?

Leadership Skill Development
I am already engaging in so many ways that I never have before and look forward to being part of good works moving forward. -Michele Murphy

GTL offers a dynamic class that teaches a nationally recognized leadership curriculum coupled with immersive field experiences in a breadth of local issues. The class meets once a month, with each meeting emphasizing a particular community issue. The class may visit Flandrau Science Center and a water treatment plant on Environment Day, or take a tour of Border Patrol HQ and the Mexican border on Border Day. Each issue day is tailored to educate class members on a key community issue, and to open avenues for class members to connect to and serve the community in relation to those issues.

Man and Woman of the Year, Founders and Alumni of Excellence Awards Gala
Thank you for all those that attended the Gala on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Loews Ventana.

Greater Tucson Leadership is proud to host the annual Man and Woman of the Year, Founders and Alumni of Excellence Awards Gala.  Equally as important as cultivating emerging community leaders is recognizing the efforts of members of the Tucson community who go above and beyond to maintain Tucson as a beautiful and opportune place to live.  The next event is scheduled for February 2021.  

Community Outreach
GTL has changed the way I think about community development and what it takes to start community development, and how small actions can lead to larger actions and become the change people want to see. -Nathan Rothschild

class project 1The goal fostered by the GTL program is to continue to develop and improve the community around us.  Each year, the GTL class commits to a community project.  The class of 2017 opted to help Youth On Their Own.  The class volunteered over 400 hours and raised over $17,500 in order to renovate classroom space to be used for educational classes to teach the teens important life skills. The group also organized a graduation ceremony and created a resource guide for the organization.
