Project ALL X


Project ALL

Project ALL (Academy for Local Leadership) was formed in 2008 as a collaborative effort between Leadership Lincoln, the Community Health Endowment and Mayor Chris Beutler's Office.

The mission of Project ALL is to increase diversity in community decision-making.

To accomplish this mission, the program recruits, encourages and equips individuals who represent or are interested in advocating for under-represented voices for meaningful roles in community governance. These roles may include, but are not limited to, service on non-profit board of directors and governmental boards and task forces.

    Seven Seminars (September-March)

    All-day seminars are usually scheduled on the second Wednesday each month. Seminars include an overview of not-for profit agencies and City of Lincoln commissions and committees. Presentations provide opportunities to learn what it means to serve on a non-profit or governmental Board of Directors or commission, and what are the roles and responsibilities of such service.
    Attendance is required at 80% of the programming hours involved in those seminars.
