London Community Foundation has been running the Engage! London program for 10 years and there are more than 170 alumni! The purpose of the program is to connect professionals in our community to the causes they are most passionate about, and help them learn how they can make an impact in the community.
This program offers a real-life case study where participants are assigned to small working groups. Over the course of this five-month program, participants will act as consultants to a not-for-profit organization, analyzing the organization's operating reality and providing recommendations as to how the organization should move forward.
Senior leaders in the London community act as mentors over the course of the program, providing an informal resource for participants so they can seek advice on how to balance their professional and community work. The knowledge these individuals bring to the program and its participants is invaluable!
Engage! London connects participants with like-minded professionals in the community who want to drive change and make a difference. Bringing together individuals from various professional fields, the program encourages diverse thinking and allows each participant to network with professionals outside their own field.
