Community Impact Projects

Leadership Essentials: CIP APPLICATIONS DUE October 9, 2017

Does your non-profit organization have a project or issue that it doesn’t have the time, expertise or staff to research or address?

Leadership’s Community Impact Projects (CIP) may be the answer! 

 An important component of both the Leadership Premier and Essentials programs is the community impact project. Program participants work together in small teams with a host organization on a consultant basis, addressing an organizational challenge or strategic issue. To date, over 70 organizations have benefited from a Leadership CIP team!

A Community Impact Project (CIP) is identified by a host organization – typically a nonprofit organization or government entity. The host organization identifies an issue or challenge it is facing. Class participants research and propose creative, sustainable solutions. This experience is designed to be a beneficial experience not only for the organization but for our participants as well, helping them gain a better understanding of community needs and a deeper appreciation for community involvement.

We are now accepting proposals for projects that are appropriate for the Leadership Essentials (LE). These are projects designed for the emerging leaders. LE is sponsored by Loyola University Maryland; LHC works in collaboration with Loyola to support the LE community service component. The LE teams have 3-5 people complete these projects in four months (February – May). All projects are assigned a committee liaison to serve as a resource to both hosts and team.

► CIP Information Session – September 13, 8:30-9:30am at Loyola Maryland – Columbia Campus (8990 McGaw Road Columbia, MD) RSVP for the information session [email protected]
