The Volunteer Centerís Project Blueprint is a leadership development program with the goal of increasing the number of racial ethnic minorities providing leadership for the boards of Lehigh Valley non profit agencies. It is designed to help these organizations develop boards that are more inclusive, responsive and reflective of the culturally diverse communities they serve. Project Blueprint develops knowledgeable and trained leadership volunteers who can most effectively help agencies meet the new and emerging needs of our community. There is no cost for this program but application is required.
This seven session volunteer leadership program covers topics which relate to board membership and leadership skills. Upon completion, the Volunteer Center assists graduates to find suitable board placement.
