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).

Leadership Eau Claire
Accepting Application for Class of 2020

Application Deadline is Friday June 7, 2019*!

The Chamber is currently accepting applications for its Leadership Eau Claire™ (LEC) Class of 2020. The goal of the program is to enhance participants’ community knowledge and leadership qualities through skill building exercises, activities and educational days. During the nine-month program, participants discuss the issues facing the community, develop the leadership skills necessary to assume leadership roles and are exposed to involvement opportunities in the community. More information is available here on the Chamber’s website and you can download an application here.

“I really truly cannot express enough how profound the experience of making connections, learning about professions beyond my scope of expertise, and making new-found friends has had a positive impact on my personal [AND] professional life. " – Nicole Schultz, UW-Eau Claire, Class of 2018

An informational meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, April 26, 2019 for anyone seeking more information about the program. Register here or call the Chamber office at 715-834-1204.

If you have questions, contact Casey Schumacher at 715-858-0614. Application deadline is June 7, 2019*.

*Note, we found a discrepency in our original LEC printed flyer stating the application deadline is Friday June 7th - we will accept applications through that date due to this error. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any confusion.
