Leadership Novato Curriculum

Curriculum Leadership Novato

The strength of the Leadership Novato (LN) program lies in its partners, moderators and supporting agencies that help us create a comprehensive curriculum. We utilize numerous venues, teaching styles, tours, interviews, and panels to bring students a program that will leave them with the skills to be effective leaders in the community. The program's curriculum really is three-pronged:  Knowledge bases, personal growth, and community involvement.

LN Calendar

Hands-On | On-Location

The Novato Chamber takes students on location to sites and helps them learn the real work that it takes to run a city. If your business or organization feels that there is something that could be added to improve the curriculum we are excited to explore those partnerships!

CS-Curriculum_Waste

Waste / Recycling

We look at the processes of dealing with "waste" or "refuse" including liquid, compostable, material, agriculture, solid, and biohazardous waste.

Tourism Novato Committee

Tourism

Tourism draws outside wealth into the economy, but what draws tourism? Is it organic interest? Learn how leaders are fueling our tourism industry and the components that influence it.

CS-Curriculum_Police

Safety

Public dollars support our security. Where are our investments made? Police? Fire? Flood? Has the passing of Prop64 caused more safety issues?

CS-Curriculum_Sustainability

Sustainability

Sustainability is critical if we are hoping to pass this earth on to a future Novato. How are we leading the charge?

Curriculum

Housing / Homelessness

Housing is one of Marin's biggest social issues. Inability to meet housing needs, can negatively effect ALL aspects of the community.

Cow

Agriculture

The same land for housing can provide jobs and food for generations to come. Is Ag on the rise? What about cannabis or hops?

CS-Curriculum_Tourism

Art & Culture

Music, festivals, restaurants, multiculturalism, contribute both benefits and challenges to the community. How do communities embrace and resist cultural changes?

CS-Curriculum_transportation

Transportation

Sick of traffic? The solution is not as simple as building a bigger road. Learn about the funding, zoning and alternative forms of transportation.

CS-Curriculum_History

History

What is the oldest building in town? Help plan was we are going by knowing where we have been.  History can reveal much about the present.
