Western Connecticut Leadership 

An initiative of the Connecticut Community Foundation, Western Connecticut Leadership (WCL) is designed to provide proven leaders and accomplished professionals with an opportunity to make a significant difference in the communities throughout western Connecticut.

It is an extraordinary eight-session program for proven leaders and accomplished professionals that provides in-depth understanding of current Connecticut issues and community needs. Sessions include behind-the-scenes site visits and off-the-record conversations with key leaders from Connecticut's nonprofit and public sectors.

The program matches need with know-how and may culminate in the participants' engagement in meaningful board and volunteer opportunities. Graduates are also eligible to participate in ongoing WCL alumni program events which offer an easy and rewarding way to stay connected and further build upon the rich foundation laid during the eight-session program.
