Discover for yourself: the best leaders are the best learners.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2020 class of our signature program, Quest!

You don't want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity for personal and professional growth. But you don't have to take our word for it! Ally Miller, a recent Quest graduate and HR Advisor at Pratt & Whitney says:

“The three pillars of LGH are community, leadership, and connections. I can sincerely say that all three of those aspects of my personal and professional self were enhanced through the Quest program. The monthly workshops are educational, filled with opportunities for self-discovery and sharpening leadership skills. The task forces that are formed in the program have community-driven missions, and act as a learning environment where you can leverage skills of diverse, inspiring leaders in the Greater Hartford area. Overall the experience enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for the Greater Hartford area, expanded my network, and gave me endless opportunities to laugh, learn, and have fun.”

Ally is pictured below at the Quest commencement where she and her task force presented their project on Hartford spirit!
