Use your business expertise to coach a faith-called nonprofit leader.
Volunteer at The LEAD Institute
The LEAD Institute provides high quality training to faith-called leaders of small to medium-sized nonprofits and provides them with the necessary business skills to help their organizations grow and thrive. We have found that providing a volunteer business advisor, or coach, significantly improves success in the program. The coach guides the nonprofit leader through each part of the program by being there to support, encourage, and share knowledge.
A coach’s support comes in the form of weekly emails and phone calls with the nonprofit leader and meetings on a monthly basis. The time commitment required is less than one hour per week. Coaches commit to serving for ten months of the program. In addition, coaches are welcome to attend the classes with the leaders, but class attendance is not a requirement.
To be a successful coach you do not need experience with nonprofits. Your business knowledge is enough. Most of the nonprofit leaders have little business background, so your experience can have a great impact. Sound interesting?
