YLEC & LEC Group Project Ideas Needed

The Chamber is requesting service projects for both our adult and Youth Leadership Eau Claire programs. Are you involved with a non-profit organization and have a project that you need help with? Submit a proposal!

What kind of projects?
Each year, we divide our LEC and YLEC classes into teams of 6-9 people to work on community service projects.

For the youth program, the projects that work the best are projects the teenagers can feel passionate about, work together as a team and accomplish something positive for the community. In the past, groups have painted murals, created programming events for children, cleaned up parks, etc.

For the adult program, we ask for project ideas that are more in-depth than simple volunteer tasks. In the past, groups have designed signage for Beaver Creek Reserve, rebuilt storage areas at the Humane Society, done marketing for the Eau Claire Homeless Children program, and other similar projects.

What doesn't work?
NO fund raising projects of any kind will be accepted. This includes asking the group to plan an event that is intended as a fund raiser. Also, the projects may not be political.

YLEC - July 12
Proposals for the YOUTH program are due by Friday, July 12. More information and a proposal form are available here.

LEC - August 2
Proposals for the ADULT program are due by Friday, August 2. More information and a proposal form are available here.

A list of all past group projects is available here. If you have any questions, please contact Casey Schumacher (715-858-0614).
