For an organization to enjoy sustained success in the community, the roots it puts down must come from the people within it. Quest unites mid-career professionals from many different sectors — nonprofit, government, education, business — around the idea of growing stronger together through collaborative leadership and social responsibility.

  • "My experience in Quest gave me the opportunity to learn theoretical components of leadership with on-hands application. It was informative and relevant for workplace as well as community engagement!"

    Javier Padilla
    Javier Padilla Human Resources Director at Connecticut Children's Medical Center, Quest 2016

A core component of the program is community engagement. Participants connect with the community to identify needs and form diverse task forces to address these needs. Since 1986, these task forces have developed projects related to children and youth, community and economic development, arts and culture, support for the homeless and more. The experience creates a process for self discovery and growth – Quest participants return to their organizations with stronger relational and leadership skills that they also apply to the communities in which they live and work.

  • “I had the privilege of working with an incredibly diverse, talented, committed group of leaders who all came to Quest with different backgrounds, expectations, and leadership styles.”
