We are the catalyst for change. We transform leaders into influencers who inspire and motivate others to achieve great things. Our immersive programs instil courage, skills and tenacity in our leaders, giving them the powerful potential to lead transformational social change.

Our Alumni are renowned for bringing about positive change in their organisations, their local and global communities. They have the capacity to set the standard in addressing social challenges.

In 2020 alone, Leadership WA Alumni committed to more than 900 hours of their time and expertise to community-based not-for-profits through our Skillsbank initiative. Our growing alumni from a wide range of professional disciplines and sectors have contributed their time, advice and leadership to diverse projects across WA.

This has largely been achieved through Leadership WA’s Skillsbank.

Through our Skillsbank initiative, our Alumni volunteer their time and skills for board appointments, mentoring, and project support (including business development, strategy development, consultation, and facilitation). These contributions serve members of community most in need, including not-for-profit organisations, outreach groups, youth initiatives and elder care providers.

Research has shown that for every hour of Skillsbank volunteer work contributed, our Alumni provides an additional 7 hours of their own chosen community work.

Not-for-profit organisations our Alumni have helped include:

  • SHAC (Sustainable Housing for Artists & Creatives)
  • No Limits
  • TADWA (Technology for Aging and Disability WA)
  • Shelter WA
  • Greenbatch
  • Fremantle Women’s Health Centre
  • Independent Centre for Applied Not-For-Profit Research
  • Powerhouse Dreams
  • PICYS (Perth Inner City Youth Service)

I would highly recommend the Skillsbank to others
