Downtown Long Beach


In 1986, Leena had a vision:  Leadership Long Beach.  The program organization was born in 1989 with Leena (aka Gloria/Patti Mitchell) as co-founder and its first Executive Director and graduated its first class of 30 diverse community and civic leaders in 1990.  Today, it celebrates 25 years and a successful youth leadership development program, too.  Leena was the Project and Administrative Manager of the Long Beach Centennial which raised $1.8 million in less than a year, creating, promoting and managing a stunning eight-months of citywide events including a 100-entrant parade, 10-day outdoor downtown celebration.  Clients include:
