Community Impact Projects
Does your nonprofit have a project you would love to do, but you just don't have the time, expertise, or staff?
A Community Impact Project (CIP) may be the answer! To date, more than 130 organizations have benefited from a Leadership CIP team!
- Purpose: Loyola University Maryland and Leadership Howard County partner to offer Community Impact Projects as part of their leadership programs. Small teams from the leadership program work with a local nonprofit to address an organizational challenge or strategic issue.
- Process: The host organization (usually a nonprofit or government entity) identifies an issue or challenge it is facing. Class participants research and propose creative, sustainable solutions. Leadership Essentials 2024 Community Impact Project applications will be accepted in two cycles, with deadlines on July 5, 2023 or November 3, 2023. Leadership Essentials 2024 CIP Hosts will be selected in November 2023; CIP work will begin in January 2024.
- Payoff: The project is designed to be mutually beneficial. The host organization receives support while the participants gain a better understanding of community needs and a deeper appreciation for community involvement.
