2 QUESTIONS: If after reviewing this RFP in its entirety you have questions or concerns, please contact Elaine Hudson, Manager of Marketing and Programs, Leadership Atlanta, at or at (404) , ext SECTION TWO: BACKGROUND AND SCHEDULE BACKGROUND: Each year LEAD Atlanta brings together approximately young leaders between the ages of 25 and 32 from the government, business, academic and nonprofit sectors across metro Atlanta to learn about the problems we face as a community and to develop personal and professional leadership skills. Leadership Atlanta launched LEAD Atlanta 10 years ago in order to inspire adults at an earlier age to exercise real leadership committed to serving the common good. This initiative is distinguished from the core Leadership Atlanta program by its shorter timeframe, the young ages of its participants, and its emphasis on skill development in addition to community issues education. LEAD Atlanta participants meet in six monthly meetings to focus on such topics as: Inclusion and Diversity Leadership and Communication Skills Community Challenges, including but not limited to Poverty, Homelessness and Education Business, Economic Development and Regional Growth Power Structures, Advocacy and How Things Get Done This year s overarching theme is Three Sides of Every Coin, which emphasizes great leaders must recognize and understand all sides of a situation to make effective, consensus driven decisions. This concept is particularly suited to the work groups who will participate in the Cohort Project. LEAD Atlanta class members and alumni represent the next generation of metro Atlanta s leaders. For more information, please visit PROJECT SCHEDULE: We expect to select final Projects by August 15, Cohort Projects will begin no earlier than September 13, 2014 and must be completed by March 27, Each selected organization will be assigned a volunteer LEAD Atlanta alumnus/a as a Project Facilitator. This facilitator will work with the organization to finalize details of the Project during the last half of August or early September. The cohorts may be different sizes, depending on the optimal number of people needed to complete each one. Upon selection, LEAD Atlanta will provide to the agencies additional instructions, timelines and tips for a successful Project. The assigned nonprofit contact(s) from each selected organization must be in attendance at the Class of 2015 Opening Retreat on September 13, The retreat will be held at Camp Rock Eagle in Eatonton, GA. Further details will be available upon selection. Page 2 of 7

The extent to which the participants will have a realistic opportunity to produce something specific, tangible, and of value as a result of their work. The commitment of the agency, its ability to take full advantage of the output of the project team, and its willingness to allow cohort members to experience the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit/community organization. The willingness of the agency to dedicate the time and the resources, including but not limited to, timely and frequent access to information and employees needed to make the project a mutually beneficial and impactful experience.

4 Director, CEO or other senior managers of the selected agencies to work with cohorts in some capacity. This person must be available to meet with LEAD Atlanta in a group meeting to discuss goals, strategies and guidelines for the projects during the latter half of August He or she must also be available to meet with the cohort at the Opening Retreat on September 13, 2014 (exact time to be determined). He or she must be available to meet with LEAD Atlanta staff and volunteer facilitators periodically throughout the project. He or she must be available to the cohort as they work to complete the Project. Provision of timely information and resources is a critical component of successful Projects. Whether your organization has participated in a LEAD Atlanta Community Leadership Project in the preceding Class year (September 2014-March 2015). In order to ensure diversity in the Cohort Projects, it is the policy of LEAD Atlanta not to choose organizations that have completed a Project with members of the LEAD Atlanta Class of ACCEPTABLE TYPES OF PROJECTS We welcome a variety of projects which will encourage participants to demonstrate leadership and teambuilding skills. It has been the experience of LEAD Atlanta that the most successful cohort projects involve the planning and execution of an activity, project, curriculum, event, etc. for a group of people that an organization serves. Projects that focus on the identification of creative solutions or approaches to intrinsic organizational challenges also have been effective. The following are examples of the type of projects we will consider. However, you are not limited to the examples listed. Please be creative! Suggestion of feasible, creative solutions for a persistent organizational problem Developing and facilitating a mentorship program Process improvement for critical organization functions Planning and conducting an activity or event for a group of people that your organization serves Reviewing and/or producing marketing collateral Participating in a process to evaluate and facilitate collaborative partnerships with other nonprofits, businesses or government programs. Developing the concept and template for a signature event We will not consider exclusively clean-up/fix-up projects or activity-based projects (such as stuffing envelopes, painting walls, filing, or telemarketing) that are not placed within the context of a larger, more meaningful project. We will not consider direct implementation of fundraising activities or board recruitment projects. SECTION FOUR: LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS We will accept proposals only from nonprofit organizations whose tax status is 501(c)(3) or from community coalitions or other community-focused programs affiliated with 501(c)(3)s. We will consider proposals from joint nonprofit/for-profit ventures, as long as at least one body involved is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We will not consider projects that include direct implementation of fundraising activities or board recruitment. There is no funding available from LEAD Atlanta for the project. The project must be able to be completed through the donated time and efforts of the 8-10 class members. Page 4 of 7
