Community Breakfast
Online Event · 95 people interested

For over 40 years Leadership Toledo has offered adults and youth educational opportunities to become more confident leaders, connect with the community on a deeper level, grow stronger in self-awareness, and serve in ways they find meaningful.
The COVID-19 crisis has greatly affected our ability to offer in-person programming and events. The need for strong leadership and community connection, however, is great during times of uncertainty and unrest. In order to continue to provide free, meaningful curriculum to high school students across the Toledo region we depend on the generosity of our sponsors, partners, and donors like you.
Join us on Friday, October 9 for a virtual version of the Community Breakfast. The format is a little different, but the message remains the same. Tune in to learn how Leadership Toledo is moving forward to create positive, impactful learning opportunities and how you can get involved.
