lefcoe leadership fund

Its twelve weekly meetings feature small group discussion, reference reading, a trip to the Virginia General Assembly and Supreme Court,  visits from elected city, state and federal representatives, and presentations by the heads of several community organizations and agencies.  As of March, 2019, 540 individuals have completed the program, the overwhelming majority of whom serve with city commissions and/or community organizations.

The Lefcoe Leadership Fund and its three-month leadership program were founded in 1996 and are named for Portsmouth leader, volunteer, and native son Vann H. Lefcoe, who lost his battle with cancer in that same year. The leadership program exists to identify, educate and encourage future leaders within the city of Portsmouth.
