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 110 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 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 (non-profit 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.

The CIP process for Leadership Premier is now closed; however, applications are now being accepted for Leadership Essentials, a collaborative effort between Loyola University Maryland and Leadership Howard County.

Applications are due October 11, 2021.  Learn more at a virtual information session scheduled for Tuesday, September 21, beginning at 9:30 a.m.  Click here for more details.
