Are you a community leader?

Welcome to Leadership Waterloo Region

Leadership Waterloo Region is a social profit organization working to address the leadership gap in our region by providing community focused leadership development opportunities. Each of our programs offers professionals and youth opportunities to hone their leadership skills while contributing to the health of the community.

Today, the 370 graduates of our Core Program, working in the business, government and social profit sectors, are applying their leadership skills to more than 400 boards of directors and committees in our region.  In addition, more than 100 university student leaders have expanded their reach beyond their university boundaries by participating in our Youth on Board program through which they have gained board governance experience and have developed a personal network of contacts from all sectors in the greater community.

Alumni Network

Our alumni form a network of more than 370 community leaders with diverse skills who work together to build a stronger community.
