Welcome to Torchbearers

Torchbearers was founded in 2003 to strengthen the connection between Akron-area nonprofits and emerging leaders, as well as to further efforts to attract and retain emerging leaders to Greater Akron. The organization is a bridge between established leadership of the community and leaders of the future.
