Leadership Council

About Our Leadership Council

The EMM Leadership Council is a program founded by Edmond Mobile Meals to create awareness of social issues and inspire young leaders to serve their community.

This training program addresses fundamental leadership skills associated with nonprofits, specifically those who are serving at-risk individuals. The interactive sessions embody the leadership qualities EMM looks for in their volunteers: collaboration, adaptability, and compassion.
