INVESTING IN PEOPLE WHO DRIVE & CREATE CHANGE

Our communities need inspired, capable, and connected leaders. But the system in which our leaders operate is too often characterized by dysfunction, division, and a lack of investment. Leading From Within invests in leaders to make meaningful changes on complex community challenges in Santa Barbara County and beyond. We bring social sector leaders together to:

  • grow as individuals and improve their effectiveness as leaders,
  • sustain each other as peers to keep leading and learning, and
  • increase their capacity to be collaborators for the common good.
