The goal of leadership development is to restore the stabilizing glue and fill the vacuum of moral, spiritual, and economic leadership that is so prevalent in many of our neighborhoods by developing local leaders.
Leadership Development takes many forms. Here are some different ways that Restore Alexandria engages neighbors in our community and beyond
Young adults who live in our neighborhoods and attend college or a trade school are offered part-time job experience, career development, professional mentoring and support for continuing education.
Restore Fellows is a full-time, urban missions program for young adults ages 18-30 in Alexandria,VA. Fellows live in one of our neighborhoods and in intentional christian community for a year while serving alongside Restore Alexandria or another nonprofit partner. Believing that relationships change lives, Team Members emphasize spending time with their neighbors, their neighborhood church, each other and with God.
Each summer, Restore Alexandria teams up with local churches and nonprofits to run various programs and projects around or city. We invite teenagers and young adults to help make their community a better place by serving as staff of those programs and projects. In addition to a pay check, they also receive mentoring, positive friendships, and valuable life experience.

Godly leadership is not about attaining recognition or glory; it’s about serving others.
