Leadership Snohomish County (LSC) is a nonprofit that connects, ignites and develops county-specific sustainable leaders to strengthen our communities. Each year, we help experienced and emerging leaders in Snohomish County gain an understanding of the critical issues affecting the region and the stewardship capabilities needed to resolve them. Through our nine-month Signature Program and Young Professionals Program, we work in small teams with the business, government and nonprofit sectors as Community Impact Project Partners. LSC features more than 700 alumni who remain strongly invested in Snohomish County.


Our Impact

More than 700 Snohomish County professionals have graduated from LSC. Employers in businesses, nonprofits and local government experience the value of this program.


27,000 hours and counting ...

The impact Leadership Snohomish County participants continue to make on the region is best encapsulated by former Snohomish County Executive Bob Drewel, speaking at LSC's 2018 commencement. "With roughly 27,000 hours of volunteer time dedicated to 238 projects, and 154 organizations who’ve worked with LSC team members on projects, the dollar value of hours given back to Snohomish County is about three-quarters of a million dollars,” Drewel said.

“The origin of this marvelous organization was the desire to address community needs in charitable organizations, to advance kindness and care, and to recognize a new generation of leaders, addressing such issues over the last 20 years as education, diversity, economy, health care, homelessness, hunger, safety, transportation, civic participation and inclusion,” Drewel continued.

Community Stewardship from the start

In both our Signature Class and Young Professionals Class, participants are immediately empowered with actionable information and meaningful local connections. These connections are real and lasting. We create connections across sectors and unlock individual potential to lead. More than 130 employers in all sectors have participated in LSC since 1996.

Amazing partners and advocates make LSC happen each year. Community collaboration created this program and it continues to fuel our continued success today. Education Day partners, sites and speakers provide content, connection, perspective and insight.

LSC Board and Alumni bring passion, wisdom and generosity to the program, working closely with staff to deliver education days, special events, strategic planning, governance and so much more. Impact Project partners provide the incubator where LSC teams brainstorm, collaborate, and muster resources to meet real needs in Snohomish County

As an LSC student, I felt this organization offered a unique opportunity to impact the county. I wanted to be a part of that for the long haul.

The program’s curriculum provided me the framework to take my skills to the next level. The education day speakers and other participants provided me with inspiration for what to do with it.

“Employees who feel engaged with the community are better employees. The overview of the county, the engagement with community leaders, and the understanding of what it takes to make a community a great place all help our employees be better at engaging with customers and the public, and more appreciative of our community and willing to volunteer.  Our investment in LSC provides huge dividends to our workplace, employees and the community.”
Carl Zapora, past Superintendent, Verdant Health Commission; past LSC Board Member
