What is Leadership Palm Beach County?

Leadership Palm Beach County is an educational nonprofit organization designed to foster awareness of community issues and promote efficient communication and cooperative relationships between existing and emerging community leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors. LPBC’s stated mission is to educate and unite leaders to build a better community. Initiated in 1983 through a collaborative effort of the local Chambers of Commerce, LPBC has prepared more than 2,800 adult and youth graduates for enhanced community leadership roles.

We uplift local nonprofits

Every year in our Leadership Engage program, the class divides themselves into 3-5 groups, each group paired with a nonprofit in the community. Throughout the year the groups utilize every member’s strengths to complete a civic engagement project, and over 4,200 annual volunteer hours are contributed. Every year, 3-5 nonprofits benefit from our Leadership Engage Program, and we are very proud of that.

We Create leaders

We enroll 45 - 50 high school juniors in our Leadership Grow program every year, FREE OF COST. These bright young leaders learn the critical issues facing Palm Beach County, are encouraged to expand their leadership roles, and build a foundation of involvement in their community. Led by a team of dedicated Leadership Palm Beach County alumni, students spend nine months gaining real-life experience by having unparalleled access to leaders from businesses, government agencies, and civic organizations.

LPBC is special in a number of ways. Our network of alumni can depend on one another personally and professionally. If this organization has touched you in any way, we encourage you to donate on April 24!
