Leading For Change is dedicated to building the next generation of civic leaders. We are committed to advancing social justice and equality for all people. Through specially designed and tailored comprehensive programs we are helping community and emerging leaders to reshape Arizona. Our programs are most effective for individuals who are working or volunteering in the areas of:
