Fredricka Joyner, director of the IU East Center for Leadership Development said, “We are very excited to partner with the United Way of Whitewater Valley for this year’s program. The program will build the capacity of individuals who are making a difference in the not-for-profit arena. This is a wonderful collaboration,” Joyner said. “Working together we can offer locally the kind of development that most individuals in the not-for-profit sector never have the opportunity to attend.”
