“Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join us for a #YALICHAT with YALI Network’s Online Course instructor, Jeff Franco, on the benefits of volunteerism, how to inspire community participation, and motivating and attracting volunteers toward a cause.

WHAT: #YALICHAT with Jeff Franco on leadership through service
WHEN: Tuesday, August  25 – Thursday, August 27
WHERE: Post your questions on the YALI Network Facebook page

Jeff Franco is vice president and executive director of City Year Washington, DC, a nonprofit organization whose teams of diverse young adults commit to a year of full-time service helping  students stay in school and on track to graduate. Since joining the organization in 2008, he has quadrupled the number of students and schools served, doubled the size of the staff and more than doubled the organization’s fundraising. He has led the development and implementation of a strategic plan that will again grow City Year’s size and impact to reach at least half of the students who drop out of school in Washington, DC.

Jeff will be hosting a Facebook chat to personally engage with YALI Network members and answer your questions. Log onto the YALI Network Facebook page anytime betweenAugust 25th and August 27th to post your questions, read Jeff’s responses and be part of the conversation. You can get ready for the event by watching Jeff’s YALI Network Online Course lessons “Attracting and Motivating Volunteers” and “Inspiring Community Participation.”
