The Leadership Louisville Center relies on your support to assure that a truly diverse network of leaders will be prepared to guide Louisville’s future.

Without your help, stories like these could not be told:

  • Kim Rice (IL '18), River City Housing“I work for a small nonprofit and as much as we’d like to provide these opportunities to our staff, it’s simply not feasible. Receiving a scholarship to participate in the program allowed me to learn skills and best practices that I can take back to my organization and share so we can serve more people in our community”
    Kim Rice, River City Housing

  • Abby Drane (LL '17), Centerstone Kentucky“I grew, struggled, learned, laughed, shared, and became a better me for my community. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in Leadership Louisville. It was the best professional development program I’ve ever experienced.”

    Abby Drane, Centerstone Kentucky

  • Pamela Stevenson“I retired from the Air Force as a colonel and came back to Louisville, because I wanted to bring a world vision to local challenges.  I wanted to live in West Louisville, where I was raised, and empower that community.   Leadership Louisville allowed me to meet citizens across the city who share this commitment.”
    Pamela Stevenson, Stevenson Law

  • Lynn Rippy“There is no way YouthBuild Louisville would be where it is today without the Leadership Louisville Center. Each interaction with the Center has expanded the sphere of opportunity for me and my agency. The connections, fresh viewpoints and resources have opened possibilities for us.”
    Lynn Rippy, YouthBuild Louisville

  • Alice Cissell“The new contacts, the energy and the love for the community are all tangible outcomes of Focus Louisville. The program was designed to make us all accountable for the success of our community. I now see the connection between our community and entrepreneurs, and the contribution by entrepreneurs to education, job creation and growth, vital elements for a thriving community. Thank you!”
    Alice Cissell, MHA, Edumedics® – Moving Healthward

With every Leadership Louisville Center interaction, opportunities open up for individuals and our community.

Personal connections, fresh viewpoints, steps into the unfamiliar – through these experiences, we empower people to change anything – from themselves all the way up to the world.

For our community to thrive, these opportunities can’t be limited by financial resources.  Otherwise, the potential for greatness will be limited, and our community will lose the talent of leaders from all backgrounds.

“Everyone has an opportunity to be great because everyone has an opportunity to serve.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
