Each year, participants from the college confirm what an invaluable experience Leadership Howard County was for them, engaging them and providing opportunities to meet others interested in serving Howard County!
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 90 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 talented rising stars and eager young professionals from local corporations, government, non-profits and small businesses. The teams have 5-7 people; the teams work on these projects from January 2019 – May 2019. All projects are assigned a committee liaison to serve as a resource to both hosts and team.
