  • A graduate 1

    “Even though I’m from Columbus, Leadership Columbus opened my eyes to so much of this city that I didn’t come into contact with. It is such an amazing experience to really dig deep and learn so much about this community, and what some people are doing to truly make a difference.”

  • A graduate 2

    “I’ve always had an interest and dedication to community involvement and volunteerism; Leadership Columbus strengthened this interest and allowed me to be more informed and have a broader view and context of the community, our challenges and our strengths.”

  • A graduate 3

    “I liked that I had easy and personal access to the people and the organizations that make an impact in our community. I really appreciated having an opportunity to hear from community leaders and observe their styles. It shifted my understand of what leadership is.”

  • A graduate 4

    “Leadership Columbus has changed how I read the newspaper. Less us and them, and more our. I am now interested in being involved for reasons of mission, rather than networking and board experience.”

  • A graduate 5

    “Thank you so much for the amazing experiences over the past ten months! I have learned so much about myself and others. I have many new friends and I feel very special to have been part of such an elite group.”

  • A graduate 6

    “I am more aware of the world around me. I have found a new sense of understanding for our community which will guide me to be a better person (managed, mother, wife) and I will be able to rally those around me to help make Columbus a better place.”
