Jade Sampson, manager, training and development for AMSURG, recently began the final year of her three-year term on the Nashville, Tenn. Young Leaders Council (YLC) Board of Directors. Sampson completed the YLC training program in 2012 and became a Board of Directors intern for the YWCA.
“One of my favorite things about Young Leaders Council is the true commitment to training young professionals to contribute to the Nashville community in a meaningful way,” Sampson said. “The program not only equips young professionals with the knowledge and skills to serve as effective members of a nonprofit board of directors, but also provides the opportunity to put this training into practice. It’s a true benefit to young leaders and the Nashville community and I’m honored to serve on their board.”
YLC’s mission is to train diverse, committed individuals to effectively participate on the boards of nonprofit organizations. Their program consists of an eleven-session training program that address fundamental board skills. Their participants are trained to be able to make a difference in the community by replenishing their volunteer leadership experience. Participants range from ages 25 to 40 and come from corporate, civic and volunteer backgrounds.
