Community Impact Projects

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!  To date, over 100 organizations have benefited from a Leadership CIP team!

  • Purpose: The Community Impact Project is an important component of both the Leadership Premier and Leadership Essentials (young professionals) programs. Program participants work together in small teams with a host organization on a consultant basis, addressing an organizational challenge or strategic issue.
  • Process: The host organization (nonprofit or government entity) identifies an issue or challenge it is facing. Class participants research and propose creative, sustainable solutions.
  • Payoff: This experience is designed to be a mutually beneficial experience. The host organization gets much-needed expertise and advice while the participants gain a better understanding of community needs and a deeper appreciation for community involvement.

CIP Application/Information – The CIP process and timeline for 2020-21 are currently being finalized for both the Leadership Premier and Leadership Essentials programs. Tentatively, information sessions will be planned for late summer, and project proposals will be due early fall 2020.   Stay tuned for more details and dates as they become finalized.
