The Community Impact Project is an important component of the leadership program. Program participants work together in small teams with a Washington County nonprofit organization, addressing an organizational challenge or strategic issue.
The experience is designed to be mutually beneficial for both the non-profit organization and the class participants. The non-profit will identify an issue or challenge it is facing and the class participants will research and propose creative solutions to the problem. This provides the participants with a better understanding of our community needs and a deeper appreciation of community involvement.
Learning that leadership is the constant among all organizations regardless of where you work and who you work for.
