Young Leaders Council & The Massey School

Oct 4, 2017 | Alumni Spotlight, General News

The Young Leaders Council (YLC), a Nashville-based nonprofit organization, and the Massey Business School recently graduated 16 Massey Grad School alumni from its inaugural partnership program. The partnership program works to train young professionals to effectively participate and engage on the boards of nonprofit agencies in our community. As part of the program experience, these alumni will serve for one year as interns on the Board of Directors for various nonprofit organizations in the area.

The YLC is a program offering 11-session training sessions that address fundamental board skills. During these interactive sessions, you will have the opportunity to reflect on important leadership indicators such as collaboration, diversity, and the role of a catalyst that is crucial for today’s nonprofit leadership roles. The training is followed by a year-long internship with a local community agency. Participants in YLC are between the ages of 25 and 40.

Participants in YLC are between the ages of 25 and 40 and come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. They may be nominated by YLC alumni, their group’s management or may be self-nominated with the recommendation of management. In addition, a YLC alumni group makes activities available to those who wish to continue their involvement.
