Each year, ALF selects 20 - 23 senior leaders from the Silicon Valley business, social and political spheres to participate in the ALF Fellows program. The one-year program includes monthly seminars on collaborative leadership topics and community issues, a six-day Wilderness experience, and a class forum that examines an important issue in Silicon Valley. One of the most important aspects of the program is the strong personal friendships that develop between the Fellows, promoting lifelong relationships that span multiple boundaries.

Participation in ALF's Fellows Program is by invitation. Members are selected for their recognized leadership position in the community, as well as their potential to provide collaborative leadership and regional stewardship in the future. The selection process is also designed to create a diverse group within each class of Fellows, bringing together individuals from different sectors, ethnic backgrounds, religious traditions, political affiliations, genders, geographies, and more. Nominations for future Fellows come from ALF Senior Fellows and selected organizations. Nominations are reviewed and invitations extended by the ALF Network Development Committee.
