Offered by the Yakima Chamber Foundation, Leadership Yakima is a premier program that works to strengthen and educate community leaders by providing participants with in-depth insights into a variety of issues impacting residents of the Yakima Valley. Participants learn about our valley’s history, learn many reasons to be proud of our valley, build relationships with their classmates, and learn how our community gets things done. The program was designed to teach
our current and emerging leaders the skills necessary to serve our diverse community and provides an opportunity to discover many different organizations and agencies that need volunteers and board members.


Many of our graduates move into executive leadership, entrepreneurial, non-profit and elected positions throughout the community since graduating from Leadership Yakima.

You may apply for yourself or your employer can sponsor your attendance.  
Leadership Yakima is a great way for employers to secure employee investment
in our valley.
