YMCA of Greater Charlotte
Community Builders is the name of a new initiative the Charlotte Y has launched with the help of HR-DNA. The goal of the initiative is to provide training & development support for staff, board directors, members and volunteers to accomplish the Y mission of building strong communities.
Community Builders is an operating model for the Siskey YMCA District in Charlotte, which includes the Siskey, Johnston & Ballantyne branches.. Inspired by Clifton Taulbert and his critically acclaimed book Eight Habits of the Heart, Community Builders is a method of cultural growth within the Y and a focused plan for implementing the Y’s mission in the communities we serve.
The objectives of Community Builders are clear and compelling. Community Builders will:
- Serve as a guide for how the district “builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities”
- Provide training and development resources for all staff members, enabling their success in achieving the mission
- Connect all of the Y’s operating priorities into one performance plan
- Provide the framework from which the Y collaborates with other organizations (i.e. CMS, City of Charlotte, Queens University).
