Developing and challenging leaders is core to our mission. And, it’s key to helping people in our region address challenges and opportunities.
Southwest Initiative Foundation uses an expansive definition of leaders. Leaders come from all industries, backgrounds and corners of our region. Leaders are people who decide they want to see change–and are willing to work for it.
Intentional leadership-building skills and best practices are part of all of Southwest Initiative Foundation’s programs. Whether you participate in a YES! team or a community foundation or training, you’ll be equipped with knowledge and skills that go beyond content.
We’re here to encourage leaders in all areas of our work and region–because you are the ones making southwest Minnesota a great place!
