"The ALF experience is unlike any other. I participated in ALF shortly after moving to the Waccamaw Region. The process brings together a diverse group of leaders that otherwise may have never interacted. It provides the space for those leaders to share their experience, learn about others and their challenges. It ultimately cultivates and strengthens the best resource leaders have to improve the community which is each other.

“My ALF experience not only strengthened my ability to collaborate, it showed me how strong vulnerability can be and how honest dialogue deepens relationships and fosters determination to find creative solutions. As my colleagues shared their experiences, I learned, and perhaps more importantly, as I shared my experiences, my voice and my strength as a person and as an advocate for the Waccamaw Region grew.“
