What Fellows Are Saying About Leadership Delaware

Our Mission
The mission of Leadership Delaware, Inc. is to recruit and mentor outstanding young Delawareans who have the capacity, desire, and the courage to seek and excel at community, nonprofit, political, professional, and corporate leadership within the "First State." These young leaders, aged 25 to 40, are recruited from throughout Delaware, without regard to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or political persuasion.

Our Leadership Delaware program offers a series of issue-oriented forums and experiences, which are based on the belief that knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership.

The breadth and depth of our 10 month program will be made evident by a review of the speaker section of this site, showing the topics presented, the leaders addressing those topics and their impressive credentials.


Leaders with integrity, character, vision, knowledge, and the ability to make a positive impact within their communities and state, are desperately needed in Delaware and throughout the United States. In fact, the need for principled leaders has rarely been greater.
