At the heart of Leadership Foundations is a simple and earnest belief that community transformation begins with people of good faith and goodwill coming together to make their city a better place. Sam Skillern has embodied this vision throughout the last 25 years of his career, joining leaders and building community in Salem, Oregon. His work has connected leaders in faith, education, and local government to reduce crime and increase the overall well-being of children and families. The Salem Reporter recently spotlighted Sam and the Salem Leadership Foundation’s efforts developing a network dedicated to turning battlegrounds to playgrounds in Salem.
We are thrilled to see the transformative work of our member, the Salem Leadership Foundation, being recognized. Learn more about the incredible work happening through Sam and the Salem Leadership Foundation in The Salem Reporter at:
