Leadership Chester County a Premier Professional Development Program Accepting Applications

Leadership Chester County's Class of 2017.

One of the most e­ffective ways to strengthen our community is to place outstanding talent in positions of nonprofit leadership. Nonprofits are dedicated to serving our community, but realize daily the challenges of maintaining a viable business that is responsive to the population’s needs. Their executives look to volunteer boards for vision, strategic planning, and resource development to accomplish their mission.

Through a unique program of the United Way of Chester County, businesses can encourage talented team members to serve the community while building their leadership skills.

Leadership Chester County is a premier professional development and community engagement opportunity designed to foster a vibrant, safe, and inclusive community. Participants explore complex social and community issues, develop leadership potential, form lasting professional relationships, and connect to many nonprofits seeking board members to lead their organizations into a strong future.
