Pitch your project for a Day of Service!

As NLC Class 34 forms up, we are looking for alumni and friends to pitch us their service projects they’d like help with from a small group of NLC participants in Spring 2018.

Through our group service projects, we aim to promote confidence in leaders by building new skills through collaborative projects in our communities. The Day of Service projects allows participants to learn project development skills in a hands-on environment while working in a group setting.

Pitch your project idea or cause now, and work with Ryan Puente and Don Slocum to form it into a one-day community service project that NLC Class 34 participants will complete in collaboration with your organization. Selected project partners will attend the NLC class on the evening of Thursday, January 18th  to pitch the cause and project idea to the class.

After the presentations, the class will complete a speed-networking activity to discuss details of the project with your organization. Participants will then have a week to decide the project they are interested in working on. After that, it will be the responsibility of each project team to connect with their respective partner organization to schedule a follow-up meeting regarding the project timeline and next steps.
