Leading Edge

What is Leading Edge?

Leading Edge is a fellowship, empowering early­ to mid-­career professionals for lifelong community engagement and leadership through service on nonprofit boards.

What differentiates this group from others is its demonstrated commitment to mentorship.

Each Leading Edge member is paired with an accomplished senior executive who can help them navigate the road ahead with valuable insight and experience.

Through these key tenets of knowledge and connections, the Leading Edge thrives on a desire to enrich the Lufkin community while simultaneously propelling their own careers.

The program also includes a board governance leadership training segment within each session, facilitated by the Angelina College Center for Nonprofit Leadership, and culminates at the celebratory graduation. Graduates will also obtain a certificate in Board Governance from Angelina College and the opportunity to be placed into a board bank.
