Small town. Big change.

 

LEAD On is a leadership development nonprofit organization founded by Fallon native Garrett Kalt. It is based on the premise of providing opportunity to the current and future student leaders of Churchill County through training and mentorship. The connections made through LEAD On will propel students from various backgrounds to be better leaders for their communities.

The organization began halfway through the nearly 11-hour drive between Fallon, Nevada and Pullman, Washington, as Garrett reflected on the opportunities and support he received from his community in Fallon. On that car ride, as he was returning to Washington State University for his junior year, LEAD On was born.

Through education and development training, LEAD On strives to prepare youth for life after high school while simultaneously empowering them to enact change in their communities by bettering themselves.

The nonprofit was officially established in January 2017 as LEAD Green and rebranded to LEAD On in September 2019.

Since its inception the organization has impacted over 150 high school students within Churchill County through Annual Leadership Summits and the Scholarship Program.

This is the beginning. LEAD On is growing and will continue to be a top advocate and resource for the youth of Churchill County.
