Through the Community Service Projects (CSP), the upcoming class of 2022 will assist 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. Applications for next year's CSP program will be available in June.

Since beginning the CSP program in 2014, Leadership DeKalb has partnered with 51 different Non-profit organizations on a variety of projects.
