Leadership Victoria grows community leaders who stand out and change the world, starting here. Leaders do that best when we connect influencers, inspire hope, focus local, and celebrate it all.
Since 2001, Leadership Victoria has been the go-to organization to develop our city's emerging generation of leaders. We have graduated 388 leaders who have completed 78 community action projects. Our annual celebration of local leadership highlights the best we have to offer at our Victoria Community Leadership Awards gala. Our graduates are the leading voices in every sector of our economy and community.
We know community leadership changes the world. It starts here.
The Volunteer Opportunity:
We would like you to join an energized volunteer board of governors who actively participate in the work of running and growing our organization. You will have the opportunity to support our executive director by managing our communications agenda, while having a voice of governance on the board.

Commitments include attending a monthly board meeting, and a small number of events during the year that the board support on behalf of Leadership Victoria.
As part of the board you’re ready to connect the benefits of Leadership Victoria with your relationships in business, education, or local government when the opportunities arise.
Overall, we’re looking for someone who intends to provide their volunteer support to Leadership Victoria for a minimum of two years.
