LEAD San Diego directly affects positive change in our region through a variety of ways. We have opportunities to directly connect our program alumni to mentorship opportunities, nonprofit committees, and local boards and commissions through our Leader Match platform. We also offer local nonprofits an opportunity to benefit from our Leadership Action Teams (LATs), the service learning component of LEAD’s flagship program, Impact.
Impact not only provides participants with a greater understanding of the critical issues and key players in our region, it also inspires participants to use their skills to become engaged with community organizations and causes. Each year, members of the Impact class are divided into Leadership Action Teams (LATs). Each LAT is matched with a local nonprofit agency that benefits from the team members’ expertise and leadership to accomplish an individualized project aiding in the organizations’ long-term sustainability.
2021 Leadership Action Team Request for Proposals
LEAD San Diego’s Impact Class of 2021 will be divided into four (4) Leadership Action Teams (LEAD staff strives for approximately six to ten class members per team, based upon class preferences and skill sets) tasked with tackling real community needs submitted by organizations from the San Diego region. These projects need to be initiated and completed between January and May 2021, and must have a lasting benefit to the community being served. Each team’s participants will bring their knowledge, professional skills, and access to regional resources and networks of influence to the selected community improvement projects. Previous projects have included development of communications & marketing plans; creation of a facility expansion feasibility report; and development of a five-year strategic plan. Your project is not required to be limited to these ideas; we strongly encourage unique and creative projects.
The 2021 Leadership Action Team RFP is now closed. To be added to the interest list for the 2022 cycle, please email Program Manager Kim Van Nguyen at email@example.com
Leader Match, presented by Cox, is a platform for LEAD graduates to review volunteer and leadership opportunities available in our region. Local nonprofit organizations are encouraged to share their opportunities here for our network to consider.
