Since 2010, each Multicultural Leadership Program (MCLP) class puts “servant leadership” into action by partnering with local non-profit organizations on community projects addressing specific local needs.
This year’s five MCLP teams will present the results of their eight-month efforts at a public presentation on Saturday, March 9, 8:00-10:45 am at Heartland Community College, Astroth Auditorium in Normal.
The five non-profits and their projects developed by MCLP teams are:
- Autism Society of McLean County – Design and pilot an employment mentoring program
- Center for Youth and Family Solutions – Create a strategic marketing and development plan
- David Davis Mansion – Develop an endowment fund campaign
- Illinois Heart & Lung Foundation – Analyze and review the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program
- Labyrinth Outreach Services to Women – Increase community awareness and partners
This event will be followed by a non-profit community projects meeting for local organizations interested in applying for a project with the Class of 2014 will be held 11:00 to Noon in Room 2102 of the same building. For an RFP and additional information regarding project efforts, see Community Projects.
These March 9th events provide non-profit organizations, program sponsors, employers, and the general public the chance to learn about the opportunities MCLP offers through its annual program.
MCLP promotes community service as a fundamental responsibility and competency for leaders. Serving a local non-profit is one of the core activities for MCLP program participants.
Organizations interested in partnering with MCLP for a future community project should contact MCLP Executive Director, Sonya Mau at 309-438-3417 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
