Our Impact

More than 600 Snohomish County professionals have graduated from LSC. Employers in businesses, nonprofits and local government see the value of this program.


LSC graduates 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 100 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 “sandbox” 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.
Adrianne Wagner, The Everett Clinic, 2012 Signature Graduate, LSC Board Member

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.
Wendy Shingleton, Owner, Squadron Spirit, 2015 Signature Graduate

“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
