San Diego Leadership Alliance

When it comes to progressive leaders in San Diego, there's one local organization working to produce the next generation of leaders. That organization is the San Diego Leadership Alliance. The SDLA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
It's New Leaders Council Institute is a program that equips Fellows with the skills, opportunities and relationships to make change in San Diego as well as providing them with the tools they need to take the next step in their careers. Joining me this morning is San Diego Leadership Alliance Board Co-Director, Johanna Schiavoni and 2013 New Leaders Council Fellow, Mark Leo.

COMMUNITY PROFILE: Meet John Greenwell, a tireless volunteer working to make a better world
Ben Cartwright, SDGLN, February 15th, 2013
SAN DIEGO -- John Greenwell says that volunteering and giving back nurture his soul. As such, he participates in numerous organizations both in and out of the LGBT community that help those in need.
The 33-year-old seems to never have a day off. If he's not working, he's participating in a community service project, or in meetings helping to plan ways to make the world a better place, or learning how to be a better leader. As a schoolteacher, Greenwell is also able to instill his sense of service in the students whose lives he touches everyday.

When the 2012 NLC Institute began, I had no idea that six months later my professional life would change so drastically.
