City celebrates Ninth year of BOLD!

Become a Leader in Your Community

The city is recruiting participants for this year’s Beaverton Organizing and Leadership Development (BOLD) Program to be held this spring in a virtual format. The BOLD Program is a leadership and civic engagement training for emerging immigrant and refugee leaders and leaders of color in Beaverton.
The BOLD program is a partnership between the City of Beaverton and Unite Oregon and is a key strategy of the Cultural Inclusion Program to increase engagement of underrepresented communities in city government. Graduates of the program currently serve on several of the city’s boards and are involved in other key community leadership positions.
There is no cost to participate but applicants must commit to attending all training sessions. English language proficiency is not necessary; interpretation is provided.
Applications to participate in this year’s program can be found online by visiting For more information, contact Paolo Esteban, Equity Specialist, at 503-526-2439 or
