Youth Leadership Sandy Springs

This is Leadership Sandy Springs.

We are the nexus of the community, where business, government, nonprofits, religious and citizen leaders come together to learn, engage and participate to make Sandy Springs a vibrant place to live and work.  

The cornerstone of LSS is our annual leadership class. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about Sandy Springs, hear from decision makers, interact with elected officials, business and community leaders while studying issues facing our changing community. Speakers and activities throughout the year also help participants develop their leadership skills. Those skills are then put into practice as class members work in diverse teams on community projects.

We are community builders. Look at the two major events we sponsor each year. In the fall, we offer Sandy Springs Movies by Moonlight, a free, outdoor family movie series. In the spring, we mobilize more than 700 volunteers for Volunteer for a Better Sandy Springs, a day of community improvement. That’s what distinguishes Leadership Sandy Springs.unity.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Learn more about us, what we do and how you can get involved

I have made friends who I not only socialize with, but who I also try to do business and volunteer opportunities with.
