Wheaties Academy is a unique leadership program providing community members with the inspiration and skills to turn ideas into action from the ground up.


Participants learn how to creatively and authentically address challenges in Wheat Ridge with support of mentors, civic leaders and community members. Together, we see possibilities then focus on what matters.


Wheaties Academy is a program of Localworks, an organization advancing Wheat Ridge as a vibrant and sustainable community. The next Wheaties Academy will be offered in 2020.

"Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people  to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has."
