Build Leadership Skills. Grow Your Network. Lead Our Community.

Leadership Lab, a program of the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation, brings together committed citizens and emerging and current leaders, to build and practice transferable, valuable leadership skills, and to explore and assess the strengths and opportunities in our community, in a unique, hands-on curriculum. Learn the state of our community now, who is doing what, what the emerging issues of our time are, and how you can be engaged to address them.

Together, we will gain valuable insights into how our community works, and will create stronger, more engaged leaders in a thriving and vibrant community.
