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.


Program Syllabus

How do you offer a program to fit everyone? By providing challenges and questions. We support and guide our class members, but we do not provide answers — we let the class come up with their own.


LSC believes:

• Relationships matter

• Sustainable leadership skills can be taught — and can last a lifetime

• These leadership lessons can be applied to any sector.

We often hear, “LSC changed my life!” Whether personal transformations or professional ones, LSC gives our class members the space to truly focus on leadership; and when they do that, they see how they can make a big difference.
