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 never-ending work of renewing our communities and strengthening our state.

The Vermont Community Leadership Network (VCLN) was launched to connect and support 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 workshops, networking “lunch breaks”, action center groups, the Leadership Guide and other resources for advancing leadership and community projects.
