Chauncey Graham, a founding member of the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council Charitable Foundation, has been selected for Leadership Florida Connect for 2020-2021.

"Chauncey's innate leadership skills are clearly evident," PBCHRC President Rand Hoch said in a press release. "What impresses me most is Chauncey's eagerness to develop those leadership skills through training and mentorship."

Leadership Florida’s mission is to inspire and educate the state’s top young leaders. 

Graham also represents PBCHRC on the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office LGBT Liaison Unit.

At Leadership Florida Connect, Graham will participate in Florida’s only leadership program which spans industry boundaries and focuses on developing leaders. The program is a nine-month institute and is limited to professionals between the ages of 25 and 39. 

Graduates of Leadership Florida programs serve as chief executive officers of some of Florida's top corporations, elected officials, executives of non-profit organizations, and leading academicians, according to the Leadership Florida website.

Graham’s achievements include being a graduate of Leadership Central Palm Beach, and a fellow of New Leaders Council Palm Beach.

He also volunteers as a program mentor for Take Stock in Children, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for low-income youth/students to escape the cycle of poverty through education.

According to the press release, Graham also chairs the Civic Engagement and Advocacy Committee of the Urban League of Palm Beach County's Young Professionals Network, a network of young professionals that provides leadership development for other young professionals.
