Each year forty diverse individuals are selected to participate in Scottsdale Leadership’s nine-month community leadership development program. The program consists of topic days, skill development and a community service project titled Project Pay It Forward.
In an effort to broaden the range of possible projects and to give exposure to current needs, Scottsdale Leadership is requesting project proposals from the community.
August 30 is the deadline for project proposal submission. Projects may be proposed by any community organization or individual. The project must affect a need within the Scottsdale community and have a sustainable component. Project guidelines, timeline and submission form may be found at: scottsdaleleadership.org
Proposed projects will not discourage Scottsdale Leadership class members from developing their own unique project ideas, nor does it guarantee that any submitted project will be undertaken.
Past Scottsdale Leadership class projects have included establishing a Pet Pantry to be part of the Vista del Camino food bank; providing eye exams and eye glasses for Yavapai school students; planting trees in a city park; developing a donor database for STARS; building a wheel-chair accessible garden at Camelot Therapeutic Horsemanship.
Since 1987, Scottsdale Leadership has graduated more than 850 individuals who are prepared to take on leadership roles in an ever-changing world. Scottsdale Leadership alumni have had a significant impact on the Scottsdale community, spearheading preservation of open space; improving the education system; championing public art; mentoring at-risk youth; and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities.
