Google has committed $10,000 to the Leadership Mountain View program, the Chamber of Commerce Mountain View announced June 9.
The funds will support a community member with financial need who is accepted into the upcoming program, which starts on Sept. 16. The program offers training in leadership skills and connects leaders in the local community.
Started in 1990, the program has had more than 420 community members participate. Its graduates include local business leaders, Mountain View City Council members and several state officials, including Sally Leiber, a former Mountain View mayor and state Assembly member, who participated in the program.
Three Google employees will take part in this year's program, a Chamber official said.
