LEADERSHIP MAHONING VALLEY

Leadership Mahoning Valley was founded in 1984 in response to the community's need for well informed, motivated leaders willing and capable of working together to strengthen the community.  Beginning as Leadership Youngstown and Leadership Warren, the programs joined in 1994 to become Leadership Mahoning Valley.  Leadership Mahoning Valley is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization, governed by a volunteer board of trustees.

Leadership Mahoning Valley has entered into its 34th successful year of programming.  The bright spots of the renaissance are shining.  The rebirth of activity in downtown Youngstown and Warren, as well as the resurgence of volunteerism and commitment to change throughout the area, are just a few examples.  Leadership Mahoning Valley is the premiere regional leadership organization.  Moreover, it is comprised of the broadest cross section of representatives from the area's business, education, media, government, law enforcement, arts health care, public service, not-for-profit and faith communities.
