What is Leadership Redondo
Leadership Redondo is designed to prepare a select group of individuals who live and /or work in Redondo Beach to become future community leaders. The group will embark on an 18-month commitment. Year one is devoted primarily to a curriculum of intensive study about Redondo Beach’s resources, citywide vital issues and residents.
