The ripple effects of our programming and network are difficult to measure but the many accolades of our members and the collaborative work that they are doing in our communities is evidence that there is great value in the lessons of servant leadership. Each year we recognize members who are continuing to set the bar high for those that will follow as leaders of the Richmond region. A list of our past award recipients can be found by clicking here.
We are not only transforming current community leaders but future leaders as well.
On August 4, 2016 Leadership Metro Richmond received Partnership for the Future’s 2016 Pacesetter Award at their annual Reaching for the Stars Celebration. The Pacesetter Award recognizes organizations who fully embrace the principles of being a partner with PFF, who serve as a model company, and leverage all possible resources to help PFF students reach their fullest potential. Our partnership with PFF through the Coaches RVA program has given our members the opportunity to mentor and guide college-enrolled young adults from Richmond region public schools as they navigate their way through higher education and into adulthood.
LEAD UP RVA has served over 500 students through partnerships with PFF, Team Excel, and other organizations, offering a curriculum that builds young leaders who are confident in their own abilities and are also able to engage effectively with others. The program is available to any youth leadership program in the Richmond region free of charge.
