Edie Yates and Kathy Wallen will soon serve for the fourth time as Program Coordinators for EMERGE Serves, a comprehensive board service training program for young professionals. The curriculum used for the course was developed by Edie Yates and Steve Baylis as a way to give back to the community by providing local charities with educated and enthusiastic board members.

The 10 hour EMERGE Serves program is taught in the Baylis & Company community room over the course of five weeks. The next program begins on September 17, 2013. There is no charge to participate in the training but applicants must be members in good standing of EMERGE Lakeland. Instructors for the course are well respected not-for-profit agency CEOs and Executive Directors, and community leaders. Graduates of the program are asked to complete service resumes which are added to a database. Agencies in our community can then access the database to find qualified and trained young people with a heart for board service.

Do you know of a young professional who would benefit from this training? Applications are due by August 30, 2013, and class size is limited to 20 so please encourage anyone interested to act quickly!
