What an honor….ENF Loving Tabs Project, has been selected as one of six LEAD San Diego Leadership Action Team Initiative recipient. We are beyond thrilled to work with such brilliant emerging leaders in San Diego.
LEAD San Diego annually renews its commitment to community service through its Leadership Action Team Initiative, the service-learning component of its 10-month signature program, IMPACT San Diego.
This year, 56 talented, community service-minded individuals are not only being equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively lead on a wide range of civic and community issues, but will also have the opportunity to help local nonprofits that serve low- to moderate-income or traditionally under-represented communities.
IMPACT participants are grouped into Leadership Action Teams (LATs) which are deployed to lend their help and expertise on individualized projects for partner agencies, such as creating marketing, business or strategic plans. By harnessing the talents, energies and resources of its class members, LEAD makes substantive, positive changes in organizations that impact San Diego’s underserved communities in meaningful ways. Oftentimes, LEAD participants remain involved with their LAT partner agencies in volunteer capacities long after their projects conclude. Since 2003, 60 area nonprofit organizations have benefited from the efforts of LEAD San Diego LATs.
“Emilio Nares Foundation provides families with information, life-enhancing programs and support to empower parents to become proactive patient advocates and focus on the needs of their children during cancer treatment. LEAD’s LAT will develop a marketing plan for the organization, including a plan to help sell the Loving Tabs shirt, a medical garment designed to resemble a standard T-shirt that provides easy access to attach medical devices to the patient’s chest. Sales of the Loving Tabs shirt will help subsidize the Foundation’s programs to assist families with children who are battling childhood cancer.”
Thank you LEAD for supporting ENF!
