Leadership Development Services

United Way strengthens the voluntary sector by providing training and workshops to local volunteers and boards of directors. Our volunteer Leadership Development Services program provides workshops and custom training sessions to nonprofit organizations throughout KFLA.

The Leadership Development Services (LDS) public workshops are designed for board members, staff and volunteers to develop the skills and knowledge needed to become effective and responsible leaders.

LDS Workshops are sponsored by KPMG.


Thanks to KPMG for sponsoring the Leadership Development Services Workshops.
