Valleywise Health Foundation Emerging Leaders

Most great endeavors start with instilling a philanthropic mindset and building a culture around giving.

But many young rising leaders are unsure of which direction to take in the early stages of their career and who to trust to guide them there.

The Emerging Leaders program removes those barriers to success and provides a stepping stone for those who want to progress in their professional pursuits.

This program engages a diverse group of young leaders and empowers them to become contributing members of the Valley’s community.


Through this program, mentees who have proven to be rising leaders will be coached by influencers within the community toward meaningful and charitable pursuits and professional development.

They will understand the diverse communities in which they live and learn how to become active contributing members of it. Diversity is a cornerstone of our community, our health system and our Emerging Leaders. We strive to ensure the faces of this group represent our neighbors, friends, colleagues, and families.

How to Get Involved as a Mentor

Executives will nominate exceptional people from their organizations to apply for mentor positions.

This is a lifetime mentorship opportunity with a diverse group of growth-mindset leaders.

Why should you apply to be a Mentee?

Participants in this exciting and engaging one-year program will undergo mentoring and workshops to develop a goal-oriented approach in their professional lives.

You will learn how to overcome challenges and will have an opportunity to practice key methods of storytelling, communications and building an impact.

Learn About Serving on a Board

Best of all, rising stars from this program will be considered to serve on committees for the Valleywise Health Foundation Board of Directors and play a more integral role in the Foundation’s operations.

This is a great opportunity for hands-on experience with the workings of the health system, involvement with fundraising and community events, and in building a professional profile. These positions will play a role in the strategic decision-making of the Foundation’s future endeavors.

“Philanthropy lies at the heart of human greatness.”
