When the Baldwin Leaders program launched more than 10 years ago, we hoped it would offer encouragement and energy to leaders in our community benefit sector. Introduced to honor former Board Chair, John Baldwin, the Baldwin Leadership Program supports the personal leadership development of current and emerging leaders. This spring, we celebrated more than 50 graduates and honored the impact they make in our community.
Baldwin Leaders have explored a range of personal challenges including: tours of local Italian foodways, ancestral journeys to Puerto Rico and Ghana, folk craft school to create hand-hewn furniture, Harvard Nonprofit Leadership Academy, Outward Bound rock-climbing school, yoga training, and tandem skydiving. Each of these activities has offered participants a unique opportunity to gain personal insight into their own work and abilities. We’re inspired to see them continue to deliver important work across Lancaster County and beyond.
