Empowering People Who Get Things Done for Arizona
Are you ready to make a difference? When you say yes, we’ll take you on a journey. It starts with learning and development to help you build a foundation to better understand yourself, your leadership skills and the issues facing Arizona. You’ll then have the opportunity to put your leadership to the test and take action on the most pressing issues facing our state through Impact Maker.
Get Started with VL
We’ve been strengthening Arizona leaders for over 40 years. How we prepare leaders is guided by our Principles of Doing – to lead most effectively in Arizona. And, no matter how you engage with us, you’ll come away with new skills and experiences, new connections, broader perspective and a personal plan for how you’ll make a difference going forward.
Continue Making a Difference
VL launched Impact Maker as a collaborative space to solve challenges together, with a commitment to long-term change that strengthens Arizona. We invite VL alumni to support and join this effort, working with community champions and experts to create and execute thoughtful, strategic solutions to issues that matter most to Arizona.

Looking Back at a Year of Firsts
Last year was an exciting year for Valley Leadership as it brought the launch of two of our newest programs, Catalyze and Explore. The Impact Maker also saw lots of growth with the launch of three new teams. Thank you to all the alumni and community partners who have made all of these accomplishments possible!
Reflecting On Explore’s Inaugural Year
The inaugural year of the Valley Leadership Explore program was many things: challenging, unexpected, thought-provoking, disruptive, life-changing, fun, enlightening, and full of emotion from laughter to tears. Read more about the experience.
Valley Leadership’s Explore Program Goes to Navajo Nation
Explore's last trip was to Navajo Nation, one of the largest tribal governments of the North American Indian Nations. We met community leaders and learned about how they continue to work on maintaining their cultural heritage while planning and forging ahead into the future.
