What We Do

Scottsdale Leadership participants engage in immersive learning to gain personal and professional growth.

What We Do

Scottsdale Leadership Development Program

Through powerful and immersive learning, Scottsdale Leadership develops current and future community and business leaders. Class members from diverse backgrounds participate in our nine-month experiential program to gain personal and professional growth, the ability to influence organizations, connections to more than 1,300 alumni, and elevated leadership abilities.



The culmination of the program is completing a sustainable community project utilizing the compilation of leadership lessons learned. Our “Project Lead It Forward” community services program assists dozens of non- profit and civic organizations in meeting unfulfilled needs. Class member teams collaborate with community partners, putting the skills and knowledge they have learned in the program to use in real-time to implement projects for organizations such as Waste Not, Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, YMCA, Child Crisis Arizona and Family Promise.
