Through the Community Service Projects (CSP), the current class will assist seven local nonprofit organizations (NPO) with projects relating to marketing strategy development, key messaging development, membership strategy development, growth strategy development, operation effectiveness, business & strategy planning, environmental scanning (e.g., trend/pattern analysis and opportunity/threat assessment. Does not refer to sustainability), organizational design and use of resources.
The class will break into small teams to work on the projects; a liaison from the CSP Committee will facilitate the meetings between the class and the NPO. Selected projects will span from fall to late spring, and consist of 20 – 35 consulting hours.
Leadership DeKalb (LD) seeks to build stronger ties with DeKalb County nonprofit organizations by offering an opportunity for in-depth and specialized project consultation. Each selected organization will benefit from working with a consultation team of seven to eight participants from the Leadership DeKalb Class.
This undertaking is intended to create an opportunity for Leadership DeKalb participants to explore the relationship between leadership and service by producing a specific value to a nonprofit organization in the DeKalb County community because of creative and collaborative efforts, drawing on the talents and expertise of the LD Team participants. It is also a way for LD to give back to the DeKalb County community.
