Lift360 Turns 25

posted on October 18th, 2017

Lift360 is 25 this year, and it is a good time to take stock of where we’ve been and where we might be in the future. How do we continue elevating leadership and civic engagement?

Lift360 is 25 this year, and we’re proud of the ongoing impact our organization and its predecessors have had on leadership in Maine. The 2017-18 classes of The Leadership Intensive and the Emerging Leaders program are underway, and will add 60 more leaders to our state who have the tools and understanding to make a difference. We have an ongoing series of Springboard sessions to help nonprofits survive and prosper.

Even as we celebrate what we’ve done, we are taking a pause to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going. The world has changed a great deal in 25 years, and the needs of leaders and communities have changed as well. We are engaged in an intensive discussion of how Lift360 can best serve those needs.

How do we continue elevating leadership and civic engagement? We believe that civic leadership is more important now than ever before, and that’s why we need to discover what we should look like, how should we be organized, what changes to our programs will make them even more valuable and relevant?

Many community leaders and our own alumni have joined this discussion already. We are reaching out to our partners to explore their ideas and interest in our work.   You can expect us to continue reaching out and inviting ideas from a broad swath of the community.
