LAP Champions are expected to:
• Attend meetings and sessions
• Discuss with your team roles and responsibilities.
• Treat the group as a team of dedicated and passionate community leaders who work for your organization in exchange for a learning opportunity. Remember they are not staff or volunteers and the process is designed to facilitate their learning.
• Commit to engage a learning community to help move your project forward while following the process outlined by CBB.
• Give your time, be responsive and be willing to be flexible
• Understand how your work style will impact the learning process. What might you need to change to match up with process-oriented learning?
• Maintain contact with the CBB Program Director for any questions, ideas or suggestions.
• Check in and encourage the team, but allow them to drive the process and take ownership and provide leadership.
Nonprofits proposing LAPs can expect that CBB class members will:
• Work toward a tangible deliverable at the end of the program year (June 2017), unless throughout the course of the experience, it is mutually decided that this may not be feasible.
• Use this as a growth and developmental opportunity.
• Be responsible for the final outcome – be ready to take initiative and move on it.
• Take the lead and find ownership for the project; ownership is a test of success.
• Be creative and innovative and avoid defaulting to normal ways of doing things.
Nonprofits and CBB participants can expect CBB to:
• Include one hour of class time devoted to LAPs at each of the 5 CBB session days.
• Monitor progress to ensure projects run as smoothly as possible, and provide support and intervention as needed, including connections with past champions.
• Provide skills training and debriefing to the participants.
