When I started the Strong Student Leader program, I was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. Through SSL, I have gained confidence in what I want to do by talking to people in the career field I am pursuing. I’ve also learned to improve my leadership skills by improving myself.
I am inspired by the impact that The Foundation’s programs are having on young people throughout our region. Leadership matters and it is crucial that we engage with our youth to assure that the future of this region is strong.
I wanted to invest in the lives of students, but it was hard to know how to do that. The Strong Student Leader program is the perfect way. I love that the curriculum gives us, as their mentors, opportunities to speak life and encourage each student.
I’ve returned to the CVLF Leadership Conference for three consecutive years because it is the best leadership event I know of. It creates momentum in the community that inspires me and my team to be better leaders. I make it a priority to attend every year.
Being in a leadership role created some real doubts for me. The coaching provided by CVLF helped me grow to be more confident as a father, a pastor and a leader in this community.
Our team has been fortunate to receive leadership development from CVLF for over five years. The personal coaching has helped me make important shifts in my leadership and the training and strategic planning has resulted in greater success for me and Safe Harbor.
Stepping into a non-profit position after being in the business world was a HUGE transition. The High Performance Leader program from CVLF gave me a community of leaders and a leadership coach who supported me as I began to thrive in my new role.
The CVLF is a 501(c)3 non-profit that exists to promote outstanding leadership throughout the Catawba Valley. Simply put, we strive to raise the quality of life in the community by raising the quality of leadership. To this end, we provide leadership development for community leaders. We focus primarily on students and non-profit leaders.
The Legacy Leader Dinner is our premiere fundraiser for the year, helping raise support for the programs and impact of the Catawba Valley Leadership Foundation
Each year The Foundation hosts a leadership conference – a half-day experience designed to inform, inspire, and raise the leadership temperature of our community.
The Foundation invests in the lives high school students to help them clarify their identity, discover their strengths, and set themselves up for future success as they prepare for life beyond high school.
