Nonprofit in Training: RiverLife

RiverLife is a mission organization that connects volunteers with people in need in the Coweta County area. Growth plans include developing a future retreat center. Melanie Reeves was introduced to LEAD by a Board Member, who is a LEAD graduate. It attracted her because she wanted real on-the-ground practical in-person training. "I wanted something that covered everything for Mission, Vision, and Values to Fundraising and all the steps in between." "We have much better clarity in presenting our organization to donors and volunteers. I enjoy networking with peers in class. It’s refreshing to know that I’m not alone in the journey, that it’s okay to ask questions. It’s a good place to get support from both other participants and the trainers. My coach Bill has been great. He asks great questions, and makes me think through the processes. He also challenges me to dream a little bigger, while keeping my feet on the ground" said Melanie.
