What We Do


At LEAD San Diego we educate, connect and engage – all with an eye toward helping you improve San Diego.

Community Impact

LEAD San Diego’s community impact can be seen not only in our ability to inspire leadership through self-awareness and education, but also through our organization’s ability to support community-based organizations through the LEADership Action Team (LAT) Initiative, the highly skilled volunteerism component of the 10-month IMPACT program.

The LAT Initiative pairs IMPACT participants with local nonprofits that can benefit from team members’ expertise and leadership, with the goal of making lasting, positive change in our regional landscape.

Each month, LEAD San Diego is proud to partner with 10News to recognize individuals who provide leadership by making our region a better place by standing up for those who need help, initiating and creating solutions for others, and fulfilling local needs.

Every year, one of the recipients of the 10News LEADership Awards is honored with the Community Spotlight Award at LEAD’s Visionary Awards, Southern California’s premier leadership recognition event.
