Leadership Development Programs Sponsorship Opportunities
United Way’s Leadership Development Programs (LDP) promotes the placement of African Americans (AALDP), Latinos (LLDP), LGBTQ+ individuals (PLDP), and young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 40 (ELDP), in board and leadership positions across the region.
Through engaging, in-person, all-day trainings, participants are given the opportunity to enhance individual and professional skills, expand connections through networking, and create authentic communities of belonging and inclusion. Graduates of these diverse programs gain the confidence, mindset, and skillset to join local community boards, take on policy-making positions, advance their professional careers, and make impactful changes in the community.
