The United Way Young Leaders Society (YLS) partners with a number of organizations throughout the Chicagoland community and currently partners with Erie Neighborhood House on a number of volunteer opportunities, including a skills-based manager training project with the organization’s Human Resources department.
In order for Erie House to fulfill their mission and empower others to reach their fullest potential, it is important they help their managers leading these efforts reach their fullest potential as well. Just as Erie House provides skill-building and access to critical resources to the community, they are collaborating with YLS to develop a Manager Training Series to provide the skills training and resources their own managers need to succeed.
The goal of the Manager Training Series is to focus on best practices with clear, actionable take-aways and tools to implement. The series provides exposure to outside speakers and engaging hands-on learning experiences via self-reflection tools, small group exercises, role-playing and exposure to subject matter experts.
As the current YLS volunteer lead is in the midst of relocating, we are seeking an individual who could take on the remainder of the project. Interested individuals need to commit to the following:
Time of day: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Day of the week: Thursday
Frequency: Every other month
Top three topics:
Motivating/Recognizing employees (done in June)
Setting, executing and evaluating goals and follow-through (done in October)
Managing conflict/difficult situations
