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 is to build community, capacity, and leadership opportunities for Black and Latino leaders through coaching, mentoring, networking, and sponsorship.
Participants will be paired with an experienced community leader who has the capacity to give constructive advice on professional and personal career goals, potential to network, and make connections within community boards and throughout the region's workforce.
