Become Part of UWGC Virtual Product Drives

The United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC) is holding a Virtual Product Drive that provides links to member agency needs through Amazon. If you are an agency wanting to be involved in this type of product drive program, UWGC directs agencies to complete the UWGC Volunteer Needs Survey so your agency’s needs can be documented. (There is a question related to product needs in the survey, and the responses help UWGC design different initiatives and recipients.) UWGC says additional agencies will be added to the Virtual Product Drive as agencies need to complete the survey.

Executives Enhance Leadership Skills

One year ago, who could have anticipated the rapidly evolving business climate that today’s nonprofit leaders would be asked to navigate? The training of adaptable, agile, confident nonprofit leaders has never been more important than it is today. OneSource Center’s consultants, in partnership with Tabert House, continue to be key players in program direction and training of the NLIGC (Nonprofit Leadership Institution of Greater Cincinnati) EXCEL Leader Development Program, and recently welcomed the 15th class into its ranks

The EXCEL program is tailored to fit leaders’ changing needs in team development and management skills. Each student in the program is assigned a coach, and the pair meet monthly to discuss class topics and issues the nonprofit leader is handling. This one-onone coaching portion of the EXCEL program is often described as the “icing on the cake.” To learn more about this program described as “career enhancing and inspirational” visit here.
