YPS is proud to offer a YPS Scholarship each year to LPV that will cover the personal tuition ($300) portion.  All applicants must be current YPS members.

Leadership Pioneer Valley trains existing and emerging leaders from all sectors of the community—non-profits, business, and government—through a ten-month, in-depth regional leadership development program that gives participants a 360-view of the Pioneer Valley.  LPV is committed to recruiting a diverse class by employment sector, geography, race, gender, and sexual orientation.

“Going through the Leadership Pioneer Valley program has made a tremendous impact on the success of my business in the last three years. I am able to practice valuable lessons learned during the program on an every-day-basis. I have a better understating on how to deal with different personality types, and how to manage customer’s expectations better. Overall, I am forever thankful to have been part of LPV’s inaugural class.” — Peter Ellis, DIF Design (Vice President, YPS)

Participants in Leadership Pioneer Valley have an opportunity to refine their personal and public leadership skills, develop diverse contacts and an excellent communications network, receive recognition for themselves and their organization for their voluntary civic activities and be provided with better opportunities for taking an active and more effective role in addressing the Pioneer Valley’s needs.
