Developing Leaders for Positive, Lasting Change in Our City
Founded in 1989 and based in Tacoma, Washignton, the Northwest Leadership Foundation (NLF) exists to encourage, develop and strengthen leadership for the spiritual and social renewal of the city.
Our Vision is that old men and women have a good city to grow old in; and boys and girls have a good city to grow up in.
We believe that effective leadership sets the tone for a good city or community. The challenges of our world and cities in particular may never be fully eliminated. However, we believe our work is to propose ways to bring about change through leadership, social entrepreneurship, faith and citizenship. We specifically invite youth to serve and resolve to participate in the world; not in ways that sustain the status quo but as change makers for the good.
