Developing Effective Leaders to Enrich a Thriving Community

Our Impact

Founded in 1993 by a group of community leaders, Leadership Clark County (LCC) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic leadership program. Our mission is to develop effective leaders to enrich a thriving community.

Leadership Clark County offers a 9-month leadership development program that focuses on topics that impact the community, including education, economics, social services, and more. With over 800 alumni and growing, LCC’s graduates serve our community as nonprofit board members, civic group leaders, business leaders and elected officials.

Community Partners

Students in the 9-month leadership program are grouped into project teams to work with a specific community partner.

  • Class projects support bigger community projects such as Give More 24 and the Aviation Technology program at the Cascadia Tech Academy
  • Community partners range from community nonprofits to public sector organizations
  • LCC students have worked on over 150 community partner projects to support the communities in which we live, work, and play

Our Program

Leadership Clark County serves employers and individuals who seek to understand the interconnecting dynamics of Clark County and advance their professional networks. LCC offers unique insight into local issues while providing the leadership skills necessary to empower students. Unlike other leadership training providers, LCC offers students a clear pathway to make their own impact within Clark County
