2017 YLC Board Member Nomination Form (Due Oct 1)

The Young Leaders Council

The YLC is a program founded by the Council of Community Services, in conjunction with the Frist Foundation (formerly the HCA Foundation) and the United Way. It was created in 1985 to address the need to broaden and strengthen Nashville’s volunteer leadership base.

The YLC consists of a 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 internship with a community agency. At this time, the YLC participant serves as a non-voting member of a working board.

Participants are between 25 and 40 years of age and come from a broad range of corporate, civic and volunteer backgrounds. They may be nominated by YLC alumni, their group’s management or may be self-nominated with management’s recommendation.

A YLC alumni group makes activities available to those who wish to continue their involvement.

COMMUNITY AND CORPORATE SUPPORT

Much of the success of the Young Leaders Council has been due to the active participation of community business leaders and agency directors. They have most willingly given of their time and expertise in the training of Young Leaders.

The corporate business leaders provide valuable insight into such topics as legal liabilities; corporate giving; what to look for in a board; and how the social service system works. Thus, a balanced, objective picture of community volunteer leadership is presented to the Young Leaders.
