When we merely accept the leaders we are given, we will never get the leaders we deserve. The leaders we need are our co-workers, our neighbors, and our teachers. It’s the artist, the entrepreneur, the parent or the super volunteer that fights for our community in different ways every day. Our greatest leaders are among us and it is up to US to find them. The LEAD NC team wakes up everyday committed to seeking out, encouraging and cultivating this next generation of community and civic leaders for North Carolina.
