Applications will be accepted through Friday, July 30 for the 2021 cohort of United Way of Coastal Georgia’s Community Leadership Council (CLC) program. Now in its fourth year, this initiative develops and enhances leadership skills for volunteers to increase diverse participation in local nonprofit agencies.
CLC is comprised of eight dynamic training sessions offered in consecutive weeks and include a Birkman Assessment review, board member responsibilities, fundraising, strategic planning, and financial and legal decision making, among other topics. As part of the program, participants will also serve a 1-year term on the board of a local nonprofit of their choice. Participants will serve as a full, non-voting board member and serve on at least one committee or assist on a special project.
Applications for CLC are solicited community wide from individuals in Glynn, McIntosh and Glynn counties. The selection criteria seeks designed to recruit a group of demonstrated leaders who are diverse in their ethnicity, profession, and community service. Past participants include college students, young professionals, seasoned professionals, and retirees.
