United Way...

ESF Development Project: Mile High United Way
for Key Workers and Chairpersons

United Way

The Mile High United Way coordinates more than 50,000 individual donors, 800 local businesses, 100 nonprofit organizations, and numerous community resources. Together, they deliver long-term solutions for individuals and families in metro Denver, Colorado empowering them to become more productive members of the community for years to come.

It was customary for all the businesses in the Denver area to donate both money and personnel to work on the United Way campaign each year. Although Mountain Bell gladly cooperated in the past, in 1985 the training program was understaffed for even their normal functions. Therefore, the Training Center requested ESF to create a training program for the United Way.

ESF applied its IDLS-Protrainer 1 Process to design, develop, and validate two series of training programs for use by volunteer Key Workers and Chairpersons who, as employees in corporations, institutions, and organizations, solicit United Way funds from their fellow employees.
