Congratulations to Melissa Conger, who is a part of the mentoring division at Communities In Schools of Jacksonville, for being selected to the prestigious Nonprofit Center’s Class of 2012 Emerging Leaders. Currently serving as the Interim Director of Achievers For Life, she has worked as a mentor recruiter and grant writer for the past year with Communities In Schools.
Sponsored by Bank of America, the Emerging Leaders program is designed to identify and support emerging nonprofit leaders of diverse backgrounds; allow emerging nonprofit leaders a venue to network and build relationships with their peers; develop leadership skills to become a future leader in the nonprofit sector; create intergenerational mentoring opportunities; and ultimately equip the Northeast Florida nonprofit sector with nonprofit leadership as current leaders retire.
Melissa was selected, along with 10 others, from a pool of over 30 applicants. For more information, check out the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida. http://www.nonprofitctr.org/2012-class-of-emerging-leaders/
Communities In Schools of Jacksonville is extremely proud of Melissa Conger and look forward to watching her abilities expand even further as she goes through this program.
