Impact: Community Leadership Projects


We believe in the power of service to bring people together and create positive change in our communities.  An important component of Leadership Atlanta and LEAD programs is community leadership projects.  Each year, project teams from the classes work collaboratively on critical initiatives that support and help Metro Atlanta’s non-profit organizations achieve their mission.

Project Partner Testimonials 

Mandy Crater

“We had a wonderful experience with Leadership Atlanta. It was so helpful to have their thoughtful and objective perspective on our current work to build a future without homelessness, and our endeavor to expand our mission to include affordable housing. These leaders were instrumental in connecting us with several partners, and brought us closer to a shovel ready project within the City of Atlanta’s Faith Based Partnership to add affordable housing units. Beyond all their time and expertise, I so appreciated their encouragement.”

Women’s Resource Center
Jean Douglass

Our agency was thoroughly impressed by the work done by our Leadership Atlanta project team. This impressive group of professionals engaged wholeheartedly with our programming, learning about our needs and the issues faced by domestic violence survivors in our community. The group challenged us to think strategically and creatively, and the partnerships they helped us form will allow us to meet the growing housing needs of DV survivors in Atlanta now and in the future.

The Grove Park Foundation
Gavin McGuire

The Leadership Atlanta class members who designed the Grove Park communication platform were truly amazing. The thoughtfulness, innovation, and creativity displayed in the final product that they delivered was impactful and relevant. Their work engaged the community as they worked to provide a diverse structure to keep our neighbors, engaged and connected to services, events and other resources. We are grateful for all that this group of servant leaders have done for Grove Park and our resilient residents.
