Lehigh Valley Leader in Me Fund
The Lehigh Valley Community Foundation has joined with the Gadomski Foundation and Jill & Al Douglass of Allentown to establish the Lehigh Valley Leader in Me fund. This fund will provide grants to support the Leader in Me program in public elementary schools throughout the Lehigh Valley.
Built around the late self-help guru, Stephen Covey and his best selling book, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” the program trains teachers and administrators to develop leadership skills in children at an early age. This program has been successfully implemented in several area schools, and the number of schools adopting the program will be growing in the near future.
Gifts to the Fund can be made by submitting a check, payable to the Lehigh Valley Leader in Me Fund, to the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, 968 Postal Road, Suite 100, Allentown, PA 18109. Gifts can also be made via credit card by clicking the PayPal 'Donate' button below. A PayPal account is not required to make an online gift to the Fund.
