Leadership Spokane, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1982 by the Spokane Area Chamber of Commerce and a group of business and community leaders. Leadership Spokane offers a civic leadership training program in which the voices of all sectors of the community are balanced, with the clear understanding that the health of all these sectors is vital to a healthy Spokane. Today, individuals from a variety of professions, races, backgrounds and neighborhoods from all over the county compose the Adult and Youth Leadership class each year. Classes focus on Servant Leadership, “Spokane 101″ information and skills such as team building, systems thinking, facilitation, conflict resolution, envisioning and project management.

Message from the Executive Director
May is full of blooms… Bloomsday, Lilac Festival, a new class of adult leaders for Class of 2016 will be announced, and a blossoming Adult and Youth Leadership Class of 2015 will graduate June 11th. Thank you to Chase Commission for the generous recognition of our Youth Leadership Spokane program as its Champion of Youth Award winner for 2015. We are deeply honored and we will continue to champion our youth to lead well. Applications for our 2016 youth leaders are due 15 May. We continue to honor our alumni for their great achievements and making Spokane stronger. It was gratifying to see many alumni come back for the Spokane Week of Giving by planting trees on the North Bank of the Spokane River, showing we remain Leadership Spokane united for a better community. We will also celebrate our alumni at our 11 June graduation, specifically highlighting our Class of 1985, 1995 and 2005. Our alumni matter. Leadership matters…Spokane matters…and citizenship matters. We are three decades strong and getting stronger. Our distinguished Board of Directors and Ms. Jaxon Riley and I are committed to building upon our proud past for a fantastic future. Leadership Lights the Way!
