The Leadership-Equity-Advancement-Development (LEAD) Mentoring and Coaching Program has been established and is the first-ever mentoring and coaching program exclusively for alumni of United Way’s AALDP and LLDP.
LEAD aims to build community, capacity, and leadership opportunities for Black and Latino leaders through coaching, mentoring, networking, and sponsorship.
Each participant will be paired with an experienced community leader, who can give constructive advice on professional and personal career goals and facilitate connections within Greater Rochester community.
Our newest Cohort for 2023 kicked off their program in early June.
