The Keyholders Program

The Keyholders Program


Presented by:

We are thankful for our returning program sponsor Northern Realty Group. Graduate class announced early October!  

Keyholders is a fast-track civic engagement program. Keyholders participants will attend five focused evening sessions throughout the summer and early fall. The sessions cover key aspects of Fort Worth, including history, government, economic development and civic engagement. At each session Keyholders participants will have the opportunity to learn from and network with local leaders in these core topics.

The program culminates with an event allowing Keyholders participants to network and potentially match up with local community organizations that can benefit from a young professional's involvement. Past positions have included Board of Directors shadow seats, marketing, community outreach, etc. The focus of Keyholders is to move participants quickly towards engaging in the city and its organizational infrastructure.

Here are just a few local leaders who participated in the 2018 program-

Mayor Betsy Price

Councilwoman Ann Zadeh

Fort Worth Historian Quentin McGown

District Attorney Sharen Wilson
