Community & Societal Impact

Together, we lift the leaders who lift the world.

Effective leaders can transform individuals, organizations, communities, and the world.

That’s why, as part of our mission, we provide life-changing training and development opportunities that build capacity and strengthen community and nonprofit leadership around the globe.

Together, our societal impact can be even greater. We readily embrace the opportunity to partner with other organizations.

Guided by Purpose, Fueled by Passion

We believe in the power of leadership for social change. Explore these 5 focus areas where we’re making a difference in strengthening education, social sector, community, and nonprofit leadership:

Transforming the World, One Leader at a Time

Everyone working in the social sector wants to make a difference. Building the capacity of community and nonprofit leadership is the first step toward lasting societal change. The benefits of transformative learning & development opportunities are not limited to a single event or training session. Long after the program ends, growth continues to resonate and impact ripples outward, affecting not only the individuals in the program, but also each of the lives that they touch and change as a result. 

That’s why we train thousands of social sector leaders each year. And as a mission-driven, nonprofit organization, we believe our work should be affordable and accessible to all — from young people to senior adults — so we have a robust scholarship program.

Our Partners in Driving Leadership & Social Change

At CCL, we measure success by lives touched and impact made. That’s why the organizations and leaders we work with consistently tell us the same thing: that their experience with us is transformative. 

Tens of thousands of alumni around the world say their CCL experience made a significant impact on their leadership and professional growth, and they’re grateful for the life-changing opportunity.

We’re proud that our work has helped to transform individuals, teams, and organizations. We’ve partnered with many other organizations to develop stronger leadership and drive lasting social change in communities around the world:
