Leadership Tennessee, a program that connects a network of diverse leaders and engaged citizens to foster collaborative, non-partisan dialogue on issues of state importance, begins celebrating its five-year anniversary this month by launching “Volunteer State of Mind” – an initiative that spotlights Tennesseans’ propensity to selflessly serve and volunteer.
Starting on August 27, 2017 and continuing through June 1, 2018, the initiative invites individuals, businesses, educational institutions, and government and nonprofit organizations statewide to go online and register their community service or volunteer efforts. Existing projects already planned or underway, as well as new ones not yet completed, are eligible and can be registered.
VOLUNTEER STATE OF MIND PROJECTS
Thank you for your willingness to serve! We look forward to seeing all the ways Leadership Tennessee Members and fellow Tennesseans work together for positive change in communities across this great state.
Project coordinators will receive additional information after registering, including instructions for submitting photos and videos of their Volunteer State of Mind Projects and events. All eligible submissions will be highlighted on the Five Year Anniversary Celebration website and via Leadership Tennessee social media outlets during the Volunteer State of Mind initiative from August 27, 2017 to June 1, 2018.
Following the June 2018 deadline, three service projects – one from each of the grand divisions – will be randomly chosen to receive a $1,000 grant sponsored by the Eastman Foundation, which will be designed to fund future community volunteer partnership projects or initiatives.
