Nonprofit Students Work with Cleveland Children’s Museum

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Ten students in Youngstown State University’s Center for Nonprofit Leadership recently spent a day working with the Children’s Museum of Cleveland, providing input on strategic planning, donor conversion and social media.

“The students were so engaged, asked great questions and developed very creative responses to the organizational challenges presented,” said Maria Campanelli, museum executive director, in a statement.

YSU students participating were Kate Landry, Amanda Paynter, Briana McGuire, Shannon Arnim, Cliff Hill, Morgan Conley, Kelly Hyden, Khiana Jeanniton, Alyssa Lutker and Leah Tekac.

Each year, students in the Center for Nonprofit Leadership work with regional nonprofit organizations to providing consulting services.

“We plan these immersive, one-day consulting projects for our students studying Nonprofit Leadership because it gives them the opportunity to work as consultants, and collaborate with each other to provide solutions to real world challenges at a large, established nonprofit organization outside the Mahoning Valley,” said center director Laura Dewberry.

Previous organizations students in the program have worked with include the Akron Zoo, Akron Symphony Orchestra, Carnegie Science Center, Catholic Community Foundation and Heinz History Center.

Student participants in the project with the Children’s Museum were, back row, Kate Landry, Amanda Paynter, Briana McGuire, Shannon Arnim, Cliff Hill, Morgan Conley, and front row, Kelly Hyden, Khiana Jeanniton, Alyssa Lutker and Leah Tekac.
