About Leadership Washington Co.

Leadership Washington Co. is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1998 as a cooperative effort between the United Way of Washington County and the Washington County Chamber of Commerce.

Leadership Washington Co. has grown from the vision of a few individuals into a major part of the revitalization of our community. Our success has permeated the framework of the non-profit community and has influenced a new generation of volunteers to take up the causes of those in need.

We have graduated 300 leaders in 19 classes who are now active in Washington county and in their own communities.

LWC Mission

To educate and inspire leaders through synergistic partnerships and civic engagement, promoting a healthy and prosperous Washington County community.

LWC Vision

We cultivate bold and accountable leadership, serve as robust resource and foster economic growth and sustainability throughout the region.
