Team Projects: Maximizing Community Impact

Team Projects: Maximizing Community Impact

Jun 20, 2019, 3:15 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

If your programs include a service project component, are you making the biggest impact on your community possible? There is so much power available with the participants in your program, and we will talk about the best ways to leverage that for the benefit of the community you serve. The Leadership Louisville Center has three programs that engage participants in team-based service work for the nonprofit community, and our organization averages over 30 projects per year delivering over 5,000 volunteer hours and over $500,000 in value.

Objectives:
- Discuss how to find out what nonprofits need instead of letting class participants hunt for project ideas
- Share how we build teams and match projects to participants (which we do differently in all three programs)
- Use the competitive nature of your participants to improve their outcomes and deliverables. Are you willing to let your participants be mad if it makes your community stronger?
