Are you involved with a Niagara-based non-profit organization or community group? Could this group benefit from additional support from a team of 4-6 skilled professionals? Does your group have an item in your strategic plan that needs development (or, perhaps, have goals to develop a strategic plan?) If so, consider leveraging Leadership Niagara community leaders!
Every year, Leadership Niagara connects 30-40 emerging leaders to 5-6 community organizations in need of some extra energy to move their mandates forward. While the leaders participate in an 8-month “in class” leadership development program (September-May), they volunteer their time and talents to community projects ranging from engagement strategies (i.e. events), to feasibility studies (i.e. for social enterprises), to strategic planning (i.e. brand and marketing), etc.
Please visit our website to learn more about our Call for Community Projects.
Applications are due September 12, 2014.
Rachel Crane, Leadership Niagara’s Program & Marketing Coordinator, is happy to discuss this opportunity with any organizations that are interested.
