Since 1985, the Young Leaders Council has been the premier organization for training nonprofit board members in the Middle Tennessee area and was created by the Council of Community Services, the HCA Foundation and the United Way to address the need to broaden and strengthen the volunteer leadership base by training diverse and committed individuals to effectively participate on the boards of nonprofit organizations.
YLC consists of an eleven-session training program, addressing fundamental board skills. These interactive sessions reflect on such leadership indicators as collaboration, diversity and the role of catalyst deemed crucial for today’s nonprofit leadership roles. The training is followed by a year-long internship with a community agency.
More than 150 graduates enter the nonprofit community each year from five YLC classes, including two in Davidson County and three in partnership with the Junior League of Nashville, Williamson, Inc. (Chamber) and Massey Graduate School of Business at Belmont University. For more information about Young Leaders Council, contact Diane Hayes at (615) 386-0060 or visit YoungLeadersCouncil.org.
