Leadership Berks Seeking Nonprofit Service Project Proposals
United Way of Berks County’s Berks Leadership Program works with businesses, nonprofits, and individuals to strengthen our community. Annual program participants develop community leadership skills and gain knowledge of Berks County’s strengths and challenges, as well as participate in a service project as a key learning experience. Graduates of the program are ultimately ready to serve in a nonprofit leadership role.
Leadership Berks is seeking project proposals from Berks County nonprofit organizations for consideration as a service project for the Leadership Berks class of 2022-23.
All class members are required to participate in a service-learning project, which is designed to be a primary learning experience for participants and a significant benefit to the nonprofit. Projects completed by the recent class included building brand awareness, creating a volunteer and research toolkit, and developing implementation strategies for local community initiatives.
Project proposals should be crafted with the understanding that the Berks Leadership class is made up of talented, professionally qualified individuals with different skills and backgrounds who will work together to help local organizations create solutions to current needs. Proposals should include a project overview, timeline, goals/objectives, a description of the positive community impact to be achieved, and related details. Leadership Berks participants are not permitted to engage in project fundraising activities.
To learn more about Leadership Berks and service project proposals, and to receive a request for proposal, contact Jean Morrow at [email protected] or 610-685-4587. The deadline for all proposals is Friday, August 12, 2022.
