MODESTO — The James Irvine Foundation is partnering with the the Stanislaus Community Foundation to launch the Irvine Foundation New Leadership Network. The project commenced with its first group of participants on Sept. 22.

The network aims to help emerging leaders in Stanislaus County connect with other local innovators across sectors and issues and equip them with cutting-edge civic innovation tools to help transform the region. A similar project has shown success in Fresno.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Stanislaus Community Foundation to empower diverse leaders in creating a better future for the region,” Jessica Kaczmarek, senior program officer said in statement.

Each of the Irvine New Leadership groups will meet for three-day sessions, three times over the course of six months. The hope is for the network to have four groups complete the program by 2018. Up to 50 members are expected to participate in the next two years
