  • Group Project RFPs

    Each summer we reach out to local non-profit organizations to identify existing social service/community needs that can be addressed via the ‘group project’ component of our Signature Program. NPOs submit their needs through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. RFPs are internally reviewed, and qualified projects are provided to the incoming class as a library of projects they can consider for small group projects.

    “I liked that I had easy and personal access to the people and the organizations that make an impact in our community. I really appreciated having an opportunity to hear from community leaders and observe their styles. It shifted my understand of what leadership is.”

  • Tom Walsh

    Leadership Columbus has really helped me grow both personally and professionally more than I ever could have imagined. I learned an incredible amount about the city and the different roles so many people play in the mosaic of our society. I leave this program having learned an incredible amount and having made such wonderful friends and memories for what will be years to come.
