What is Skillsbank?

The Skillsbank initiative was founded in 2005 in recognition that our highly skilled and influential alumni could make a big social impact on the capacity of the community and not-for-profit sector. The Leadership WA community is able to give their time, energy, insights and advice in community service on a pro bono basis. The opportunities include board appointments, mentoring, and project support (including business development, strategy development, consultation, and facilitation).
These contributions serve members of community most in need, including not-for-profit organisations, outreach groups, youth initiatives and elder care providers.

Our social impact

Together, we are making a difference to the organisations themselves and the members of community they serve.

The values of Leadership WA are embodied in all that we do and Skillsbank is a means to facilitate our alumni joining us in upholding the values and giving back and investing care for our local and global community.
