Exton, PA – United Way of Chester County proudly announces and congratulates the 2024 graduating class of Leadership Chester County (LCC). This leadership development initiative nurtures and empowers emerging leaders, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to make a positive impact in their communities.

For over two decades, LCC has been instrumental in bringing business insight to the boardrooms of nonprofits across the region. Administered and facilitated by United Way of Chester County, in partnership with West Chester University and Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry, the program has produced 560 graduates over its 23-year history.

Graduates of the program return to their organizations with valuable new business networks, enhanced leadership and entrepreneurial skills, and a comprehensive understanding of the local socio-economic environment. This knowledge empowers them to engage in strategic planning and foster collaboration, essential for building a robust community.

Kelly Cockshaw, Director of Leadership and Innovation at United Way of Chester County, remarked, "Nonprofit organizations have a critical need for qualified board members. I am so proud of this graduating class who are now ready to meet that need in our community! They are all impressive, compassionate professionals, and I can’t wait to see their newfound leadership skills in action.”
