Engagement Umbrella

The mission of the Cleveland Leadership Center is to build a continuum of civic leaders committed to our community’s excellence by serving as a catalyst for civic engagement.

  • NONPROFIT LEADERS: Alumni Nonprofit Leaders Circle is driven by alumni. CLC is the convener.
  • COMMUNITY:  Leadership Action Projects or LAPs connect Cleveland Bridge Builders and community organizations so that citizens and organizations can learn from each other.  Both come out ahead.
