Ledge envisions a world
where people lead relationally
and share power

From our years of working with teams, we are convinced that lack of trust and misuse of power destroy team effectiveness.

We work to develop energized teams

who share power and expand their impact.

Thanks for checking out Ledge Leadership.

Ledge is a Charity that offers team experiences and training for both young people and adults. When you participate in our adult training you are helping to provide financial support to our

youth and young adult programs. 

We believe that young leaders can learn to share power and experience transformative team leadership practices as they navigate post-secondary education, volunteer opportunities, and employment. Ledge's work extends into the systems and settings in which young people live, work and learn.
