Leadership Dayton is a premier leadership development program designed to identify, educate and motivate a network of community leaders and increase their capacity to serve the Dayton region.

Why Leadership Dayton?


“Leadership Dayton gave us the opportunity to meet Dayton’s most prestigious leaders as they shepherded the region’s successes and navigated the region’s challenges in real time.  My Leadership Dayton classmates re-framed my thinking, challenged me to be my very best, and are now my most valuable collaborators in serving Dayton. “

Building better leaders

Each class begins the Leadership Dayton experience with an opening 2-day overnight retreat, followed by a full day immersion each month, culminating with a closing day retreat and graduation. Class graduates are matched with a non-profit organization in order to jump start their commitment to servant leadership.
