Class of 2015 Community Volunteerism Projects

Leadership San Jose’s class of 2015 worked on four amazing projects during their year.

The Hunger Project : LSJ class members each hosted a monthly food drive for a family identified by the Police Activities League. Together they raised $1,000 in food gift cards and hundreds of pounds of food.

The Homeless Project: LSJ class members selected the Women’s Gathering Place shelter as the recipient of their project and raised $2,000 to purchase a washer and dryer. Homeless women now have a place to wash their clothes.

The Economic Development & Arts Project: LSJ class members combined issues to create an interactive experience/game about San Jose’s history, art and current downtown businesses.The team is now looking for partners to help make the concept a reality.

The Youth Project: LSJ class members worked together to create a marketing and social media plan, along with a video, to help attract volunteers for The Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley.
