Leadership Starts Here!

Why It Matters

Community doesn’t just happen – it’s created by what leaders do, the experiences we share, and the energy and commitment we gain to build a thriving community. Leadership Sandy Springs (LSS), inspires and empowers leaders to be catalysts for transformational progress in our city and region.


Leadership matters. Community matters. Our alumni make a difference in our community and beyond. LSS doesn’t end with graduation; it’s just the beginning! Join us!

Who We Are

LSS is the area’s best resource for leadership development and community engagement. We educate, develop, and connect experienced and emerging leaders, encouraging them to take leadership roles in Sandy Springs, and the Central Perimeter area. We’re small enough to know one another well and large enough to make an impact.


Since 1986, over 1,100 LSS graduates have made a positive difference in our community. Alumni serve on city councils, lead large and small businesses, head community nonprofits and serve on their boards. We’ve been shaping Sandy Springs for 35 years—even before its inception in 2005!

What We Do

Leadership Sandy Springs offers two leadership programs: our core, immersive 9-month adult program, and Youth Leadership Sandy Springs (YLSS), an interactive program for high school students in the 10th and 11th grade.

We offer a robust alumni program and three signature community programs: Live Learn Lead, Volunteer for a Better Sandy Springs and Movies by Moonlight, providing opportunities to enlighten, engage, volunteer and deepen community connections.

Thank you to our sponsors

We are grateful to all our financial and in-kind sponsors. Your donations to Leadership Sandy Springs make it possible to develop, educate and connect leaders and inspire them to make positive change in our community.

Leadership Sandy Springs

We develop, educate, and connect leaders through community engagement, innovative programming, and volunteer opportunities to enrich a vibrant Sandy Springs and Central Perimeter area.
