Volunteering for Leadership Development : ACOSVO

Volunteering for Leadership Development : ACOSVO

The Project Lift leadership development approach is all about fostering and enabling learning in practice and from practice. We encourage leaders at all levels to consider the interface between Project Lift and Charity and Third sectors as a potential opportunity to learn more about your own leadership, working with a new team and the charitable context in Scotland.  It’s a complex landscape and understanding how it integrates with the myriad of public sector bodies all working together for a better Scotland can support systems thinking too.

Volunteering for development can be as much or little as you can manage; from reading case histories, to working as an expert, having a leadership role on a charity board or a leadership exchange providing contextual understanding and contacts; it is all about self, team and system.

An excellent place to start reading more about how you can be involved and for the latest news and development opportunities is with Acosvo.  They share their vision as excellent voluntary leadership in Scotland with the aims to support, develop and inspire voluntary sector leaders at all stages in their journey, advance thinking, ideas and resilience for the future and strengthen connections, organisations, governance, sustainability & partnerships.
