Equip. Connect. Transform.


Each February, we host an annual LEAD Impact Event. We look forward to sharing the impact of LEAD on our nonprofit graduates and the impact of our graduates on clients, communities, Atlanta, and the world!

LEAD’s Ten Month training program equips nonprofits to thrive. Over 110 nonprofits have graduated from LEAD’s programs since 2007 and 98% of graduates are still in operation! This translates into significant social impact for Atlanta and beyond. The Annual Impact Event creates awareness for our programs and invites others into this transformative work!

The LEAD Impact Breakfast offers the opportunity to get to know LEAD's graduates and hear how LEAD has helped their organizations more effectively achieve their missions. We share opportunities to coach, volunteer, or attend trainings and seminars on nonprofit best practices hosted by LEAD throughout the year.

Finally, we announce the winners of the LEAD Impact Awards. One LEAD volunteer is recognized for Excellence in Coaching and Community Partnership and one LEAD nonprofit graduate is recognized as the winner of the Chris York Impact Award for Nonprofit Excellence.
