American Leadership Forum

The American Leadership Forum is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to join and strengthen diverse leaders to better serve the common good. We do this through a yearlong Fellows Program in each Chapter's community in which leaders can engage in dialogue, differ, and build relationships. ALF strengthens Fellows’ capacity to address public issues collaboratively and builds a strong leadership network to work for positive change in our community.
