What is LMV?

Leadership Mountain View (LMV) is a community and civic leadership program that exists to allow those who live or work in our city to access the people, institutions, and organizations that keep Mountain View one of the most desirable communities in the country.



To connect Mountain View community members, develop their leadership skills, and inspire them to be active and informed leaders.

Over the course of nine months, you’ll get an inside look at city/county/state government, public safety, education, business, health and human services, as well as arts, media and diversity. All of this is done while also developing leadership skills and practical applications. Who are the ‘players’ in the cultural, artistic, and recreational life of the city? How does city government work? How does Mountain View fit into the regional picture? What are the important issues facing the local education and public safety systems? How can citizens make a difference? These and many more community themes are explored in the LMV course, which runs September through May, typically meeting on the second Friday of each month.

  • Leadership Mountain View (LMV) is a community leadership education program for adults who live or work in Mountain View
  • Spend nine full Fridays in the classroom and on field trips developing your leadership skills and learning about Mountain View
  • Instructors are local leaders and experts from the public and private sectors

Many employers cover the tuition through their Education Reimbursement programs. Limited scholarships through LMV are available.
