Leadership Development Series




The Leadership Development Series (LDS) is a 10-week series that engages young leaders with an interest in nonprofit management and development. LDS offers a hands-on approach, allowing class participants the unique opportunity to lead a project with a local nonprofit organization.

Each week, participants receive specific direction and guidance from community leaders on a vital topic of non-profit and civic engagement. Class topics range from volunteer recruitment, fundraising, community relations, and marketing. Throughout the series, class members apply what they learn to the projects in which they are working.

Past LDS guest speakers have included:

  • Michael Hecht | GNO Inc.

  • Andrea Chen | Propeller

  • Lee Zurik | Fox 8 News

  • Mark Romig | New Orleans Tourism and Marketing

  • Patrick Comer | Lucid

  • Wes Palmisano | Palmisano Construction
