Partners in Peace – Meet Our Staff & Board

“At Anytown Leadership Camp we continue to explore prejudice & discrimination, foster relationships and celebrate diversity.  Our volunteers serve as more than camp counselors and advisors, but as trusted mentors and life-long friends.  And while hate still continues and injustice still happens (especially in our world today), it continues to give me hope.”

Partnership is Everything

At Anytown Leadership Program, Inc., we believe change starts with a conversation. And, we believe that when people respect and know how to communicate with others who are different from them, everyone benefits.

We partner with organizations across our community and our state. These partnerships allow us to collaborate with and deliver programs to diverse groups, sharing ideas and expertise to help move our community forward. Here are some of the businesses, donors and community groups who have helped make our work possible.

We’d love to partner with you as well. Connect with us.
