The Community Learning Project has a long-standing history with the Leadership Alamance program. Each year non-profit agencies and civic organizations have the opportunity to submit applications to be considered by the current program participants. Most recent projects include collecting items for the Baby Closet, completing a Teen Room at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, creating a safe play area for children who are staying at Allied Churches, organizing the inaugural Touch-a-Truck event as well as a Roll and Read event, and assisting in the creation of a Parklet for the City of Graham.
Impact – to have a strong, lasting, effect on someone or something.
While each one of these projects served a different population in our community, they all had one common goal – to leave a lasting effect on the intended group. After being closed for a period of time, the playground at Allied Churches is now open and children staying at the facility have access to a safe play area. For some, the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club is the only constant they have in their life and they now have a space, the Teen Room, to call their own.
While these projects certainly impact the non-profit agencies and civic organizations whose proposals are selected, the community as a whole reaps the benefit and sees the lasting impact the outcomes have on our citizens.
This year’s class is accepting project proposals through December 3. If you are aware of a non-profit agency or civic organization that would be interested in submitting an application to be considered by the class of 2019, please visit our website to view the guidelines and complete the application.
