Eastmark Leadership lays the foundation for resident leadership today and for the future of our community. This unique program provides opportunities for residents to become more involved with our community, growing relationships with neighbors and collaboratively addressing community needs. In addition, it provides experiences and training to develop individual leadership values and skills.

Class 2 participants attended monthly sessions themed around topics like environmental mindfulness and stewardship, regional assets and economic development, personal and community values, and creating a sense of place. There were also opportunities to tour local sites, like the Superstition Police Division and the Mesa Historical Museum.

A key component to the leadership program is the class project. Class 2 chose to lead a benefit drive to support Sunshine Acres, a local organization that provides at-risk children with a safe and stable environment, therapy, support and love

You may have seen Class 2 members out at the Eastmark First Friday Concerts and the Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods (G.A.I.N.) event selling water bottles and glow sticks to raise money for food and entertainment gift cards that Sunshine Acres can use for outings with the children, as birthday treats, etc. Eastmark Leadership collected $1,000 in gift cards thanks to the generosity of our community members.

Congratulations on a job well done, Class 2. Time to bring on Class 3.

Recruitment for Class 3 begins this January. If you’re interested in learning more or you’re ready to start your own leadership journey, please contact Community Engagement Manager Kimberly Crowther Miller at kcmiller@eastmark.com.
