Leadership Victoria had an incredible impact …Their impact will continue to be felt long after graduation.

Lisa Helps, Mayor of Victoria


Leadership Victoria… is a program well worth supporting in our community.

Sandra Richardson, CEO of Victoria Foundation


The Leadership Development Program is unparalleled in it's rich ability to build a bridge between up-and-coming leaders and the established structures within our community. The program helped me to grow my capacity for leadership by connecting me with a variety of community leaders and providing the space to better understand myself and abilities. The speakers, coaches, program leaders, and program participants were all top notch. This is a vital resource for Victoria and one that I will turn to through the rest of my career.
