Give Back Day

Many leaders that work for charities go years without any development or encouragement.

That’s why Leaders for Leaders created Give Back Day; a free, one-day leadership development event specifically for leaders in charities; empowering them to continue to do their important work, making an even greater impact in the world.

How it Works

(and how you can help!)

Participants are Nominated to Attend

The Leaders for Leaders community (clients, partners, facilitators) nominates ideal participants. Submitting an online nomination only takes a few minutes! Ideal participants are supervisors, managers, and emerging leaders who work in charities and not-for-profits, but lack opportunities for leadership development.

50 Participants are Selected to Attend Give Back Day

From the list of interested nominees, Leaders for Leaders will randomly draw 50 participants to attend the event. Beyond taking in fantastic workshops and keynotes, participants will be treated to great meals throughout the day, and a gift just to let them know how much we value their work.

Participants Receive Ongoing Follow-up & Support

After Give Back Day, participants will become part of the Leaders for Leaders community. This allows them to take advantage of ongoing leadership development resources and tap into a supportive community of leaders.

“Thank you for including me in Give Back Day. From start to finish it was a meaningful, fun and challenging day of learning. You truly spoiled us - and as a leader in the not-for-profit world – this is truly rare. I feel rejuvenated to continue to lead my team in a healthy and focused way thanks to all of you.”

Director - Woman’s Place of South Niagara​
