Leadership Prince William Begins Recruiting for Class of 2021; This Year with More Scholarships than Ever

 

Manassas, VA-  Leadership Prince William (LPW) is pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, they have received a grant from Potomac Health Foundation which enables them to offer up to five full or ten partial scholarships for their Signature Program Class of 2021. Those eligible for these scholarships will be people of color who live or work in one of the thirteen zipcodes serviced by Potomac Health Foundation. Scholarship recipients must also apply for and be accepted to Leadership Prince William’s Signature Program.

Peace Home Lending is also sponsoring two (2) $1,000 scholarships for young professionals who have been accepted to the Signature Program.

From their first class in 2008 to today, the strength of Leadership Prince William’s adult program has been rooted in participation representing all aspects of the greater Prince William community–various professions, industries, demographics, neighborhoods, experiences and skills.  Their alumni run small businesses, work in the technology sector, the arts, education, health care, government, human services, public safety and more. In order to be eligible to participate in the Class of 2021, candidates for the Leadership Prince William Signature Program must have lived or worked in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park for at least one year by September 1, 2020.

Says Leadership Prince William Executive Director Andrea Money, “Through these new scholarships we are enabled to more actively pursue program participants and graduates who espouse diverse perspectives; crucial to ensuring that the leadership in the local business, government and not-for-profit communities accurately reflects and celebrates the racial and ethnic diversity of the people in the greater Prince William community. We have been a majority minority community since 2010.”

Applicants for the Potomac Health Foundation-funded scholarships must additionally meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • You are a person of color (May include the following: mixed race, African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Latin American, etc.);
  • You live or work in the Potomac Health Foundation service area (represented by the following zip codes: 22125, 22079, 22191, 22026, 22135, 22554, 22556, 22134, 22172, 22025, 22193, 22192, 20112)

 

The Leadership Prince William Signature Program exposes emerging and established community leaders to the many facets of Prince William County and Greater Manassas, from History and Government to Health and Human Services. It can be a life-changing experience for many; allowing participants to look behind the scenes at how their community functions. At the same time, class members are discovering their own strengths and how their leadership may be needed in their workplace and beyond.

 

Selection for these scholarships is contingent upon selection as a member of the Leadership Prince William Class of 2021. Additional scholarship opportunities may be available for those who do not meet these criteria.

 

Applications for both the Leadership Prince William Signature Program and the Scholarship for Leaders of Color became available on January 26, 2020 and will close June 26, 2020. Applications are available online at leadershipprincewilliam.org. For more information on the program and scholarships, call Leadership Prince William at 571-765-7568.

Sean Porter, LPW Class of 2017

Owner, Loveless Porter Architects

Sean Porter, Owner, Loveless Porter Architects

 

Tell us a little about your job:

I am an Architect lacking love, hence the name…but not only that, I am an owner, provider of inspiration, and your village architect. We have been in Historic Manassas for years and will be for many more.

 

What’s new since you graduated from LPW? 

Time flies by, I now have a son in college who is turning 21 and one turning 18 this year. Also, we have finally relocated to our new offices, designed by Loveless Porter Architects!

.

What is your favorite LPW memory?

The first night at the retreat…I can’t say anything more than that.  But also getting to see my classmates every month to learn and then hang out.

 

How has Leadership Prince William helped you get to where you are today?

In Architecture school, they should have said “if you plan on owning a firm, you should take personnel management classes”, but they did not.  So until I graduated LPW, I was winging it with my employees.  Although not easy, I am trying to apply my quad emergenetics to the management structure.  This allows me to react appropriately to my employee attributes.  Still a work in progress…

 

What does leadership mean to you?

“It may be hard, but not impossible” is a motto I have in my office foyer.  To lead is to make mistakes and grow from them in hard situations.  No person or project is perfect; it is how you lead your team through the difficult situations and arrive at a positive outcome.

 

Any final thoughts?

Our class motto was going to be “It took 10 years to Get it Right” but ultimately “Lead by X-ample” was selected.

“If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time.”

Leadership Prince William Engages 318 Volunteers for Day of Service

May 4 Project Benefited The Arc of Greater Prince William & John Jenkins Park

More photos available on Facebook.

The Leadership Prince William Class of 2019 (pictured here) planned and implemented the entire project.

For the fifth consecutive year, Leadership Prince William (LPW) and Comcast teamed up on a local community service project for the 18th Annual Comcast Cares Day. On Saturday, May 4, over a period of just four hours, more than 300 volunteers came together on the grounds of The Arc of Greater Prince William for a day of service. Projects included revitalization efforts at the adjacent John D. Jenkins Park (part of the Prince William County Parks System), painting the interior of the Muriel Humphrey Childcare Center for the Arc, and  extensive exterior improvements to the Arc grounds; from landscaping to painting playground equipment and over 100 yards of curb. Volunteers even built furniture for the classrooms at the Arc and sowed native wilflower seeds at John Jenkins Park, among other projects.

Andrea Money, Executive Director for Leadership Prince William, explained how The Arc was chosen for this year’s project:  “Each year the members of our Adult Signature Program work in teams to propose various projects for Comcast Cares Day,” she said. “We submit the proposals to Comcast for a final decision. The team that put together the ARC project proposal had such a passion for helping people with disabilities, and it really stood out. The entire Leadership Prince William Class of 2019 threw their weight behind the project and it came together in a huge way. I think that passion extended to the volunteer sign-ups as well. We have never had this many volunteers on any other project.  Eventually we actually had to close the registration because we had exceeded the estimated needed by over 100 people. It was clearly the right time for this project.”

According to Money, the LPW Class of 2019 managed to secure nearly $20,000 in cash and in-kind support for the projects. Comcast employees made up around 20% of the volunteer brigade which also included the Colgan High School baseball team, Leadership Prince William Alumni, a girl scout troop, a local softball team, a handful of residents from Birmingham Green and members of Potomac Valley Church. Michael Carter, a Master Plumber and the Plumbing Program teacher at Gar-Field High School even came out and replaced sinks and toilets in four of the bathrooms in the Arc’s Childcare Center in advance of the project day.

Sponsors and supporters for the day included: COMCAST; The members of the LPW Class of 2019; First Light Home Care of Woodbridge;  Dominion Energy; Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center; Workgroup Consulting, LLC; Livesay & Meyers PC;  Dale City Moose Lodge 2165; Didlake, Inc.; Freddie Mac; American Disposal;  MiBox of Northern Virginia; Cardinal Management Group; Bristle & Yi Law; Community Residences, Inc.; Micron Technology; Northern Virginia Community College-Manassas Campus; The Prince William County Police Association, The Bull Run Manassas Kiwanis Club; ImagiNation Learning Center; Mike Garcia Construction and Harris Teeter.

Leadership Prince William credits their partnership with Comcast and the Prince William County Department of Parks & Recreation with the success of this year’s project.

The Arc of Greater Prince William is committed to providing opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities to achieve their greatest potential for growth and independence. The Arc offers residential services, The Arc Muriel Humphrey Childcare Center, family support, a recreation program, vocational services and adult day support services.

What is the impact of Comcast Cares Day?

Comcast Cares Day began in 2001 to celebrate Comcast’s commitment to volunteerism. This day mobilizes employees, their families and friends to work alongside community partners and public officials to revitalize, refurbish and beautify communities and neighborhoods. Leadership Prince William partnered with Comcast Cares for the fifth consecutive year to host a day of volunteerism in the Greater Prince William Area.
