Montgomery County Foundation - Learners to Leaders:Civic Engagement of Older AdultsLearners to Leaders: Civic Engagement of Older Adults Initiative Please call (610) 313-9836 or email execoffice@mcfoundationinc.org for: - More information on volunteer opportunities for those 55-plus; - Training sessions for individuals and nonprofit organizations; - Interest in becoming a Civic Engagement Task Force member; - How to support the Learners to Leaders: Civic Engagement of Older Adults Initiative, financially or otherwise. The Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. has undertaken a comprehensive direct service project, focused on changing how the community perceives the skills and experiences of individuals 55 years of age and better. Critical to the pilot stage was the design of a training session for prospective volunteers, 55-plus, interested in playing a leadership role in the capacity building of local agencies. Also key was the facilitation of a highly interactive, three-day training series for regional nonprofit organizations designed to attract and retain older volunteers to community service. Post-training, both parties were brought together for a "matching" event and ongoing project analysis and evaluation. The current phase is focused on the development of a Civic Engagement Task Force and the formal implementation of a refined training model that will test the validity of the lessons learned to date. The first Task Force project has been chosen as a the result of a pervasive, key finding of the pilot wherein the need for regional nonprofit organizations to institute formal volunteer management structures and procedures, in order to take best advantage of the assets and resources of older adult volunteers, was made clear by all stakeholders. The Task Force will in time also identify and address the collaborative resolution of a wide range of identified community challenges.MontgomeryThe Montgomery County Foundation, Inc. - Montgomery; Blue BellMontgomery County Foundation
