Vermont Community Leadership Guide
Tips and strategies for community and economic development projects

Vermont is a place where motivated individuals have real power to make positive change in their communities. Throughout our history, the work of these leaders has shaped our towns and the state as a whole. Today, active and engaged local leaders, with or without an official position, are more important than ever as we respond to and recover from the Covid-19 crisis and continue the critical work of renewing our communities and strengthening our state.

The Vermont Community Leadership Network (VCLN) connects and supports local leaders as they build local projects, organizations, and systems that serve their communities and Vermont’s urgent and long-term needs. The Network supports members with various workshops and resources such as the Leadership Guide for advancing leadership and community projects.

Join the Leadership Network to receive updates about workshops and action center opportunities.
