The LEAD Program is 5 semesters broken down over two and a half years. A semester is made up of 6 months, with students having new assignments and meetings every month. Every semester ends with a one month break before the next semester begins.
Students work through the LEAD Program in small groups called cohorts. Cohorts are made up of 5-8 people who meet once a month for Cohort Gatherings. Students may be able to meet locally, or join digitally because of distance. Every cohort is led by a trained Cohort Director.
