A World of Ways to Help NorthFork Help Humanity

As a reimagined NorthFork comes to life in all of its vibrant color, there is no shortage of opportunities to share your fabulous gifts of time, talent, or treasure. Indeed, there’s a world of ways to help NorthFork; many needs can be satisfied from the comfort of your home or office.

Your gift, in any form, provides a huge encouragement as our team of passionate and creative people grows, and it helps us raise awareness for a Joshua generation of young and emerging servant leaders unafraid to step into their mighty Jordan and take our world into a land flowing with milk and honey ~ a land where leaders routinely lift others on their shoulders so they, too, can reach for the stars and realize a dream come true. For example, you could:

     • ‘Like’ and follow NorthFork’s Facebook page, Servant Hearts

     • RT (re-tweet) our Servant Hearts Twitter updates

     • Tell your friends about our work!

     • Volunteer!

     • Write for our blog! Guidelines here.

     • Serve on NorthFork’s Collective Voices Youth Advisory Round Table!

     • Suggest Ideas/Ways to encourage young people to volunteer and/or serve their community.

     • Recommend servant leaders for positions on NorthFork’s all-star Board of Directors, men and women who lead with love, who believe in humanity’s vision for a better world, who see the urgency of need, who see great value in what NorthFork is doing to empower voices and build a world of ‘we,’ who share our enthusiasm for this important global cause, and who recognize humanity’s vision has gone beyond “that is nice” to something they see as so compelling they will co-invest with considerable resources (time, talent, and treasure) and/or reliable, viable connections to others with time, talent, and treasure.

     • Contribute your expertise as one of NorthFork’s trusted advisors, lending your head and your heart to advise on matters of servant leadership, the law, fundraising, talent, stepping and staying out of the box, etc., as NorthFork does its part to bring the world to the change it so desperately seeks.

     • Lend your web design/development and SEO skills to our work.

     • Internships that get young minds involved and thinking about what’s important.

     • Tell the world you are doing your part to create a world of ‘we,’ and ask others to join you!

     • Recommend servant leader-based corporations and organizations that might welcome opportunity to launch special partnerships and alliances to promote servant leadership in their community, across the country, or around the globe. For example, the National Urban League Young Professionals. Corporations that have adopted the servant leadership mantra include TDIndustries, SouthWest Airlines, Herman Miller (Max Depree is the son of the founder), JetBlue, Schneider Corporation, PPC Partners, Broetje Orchards, Schmidt Associates, and EcoAnalysts (in Moscow, Idaho), among others.

     • Suggest/Provide opportunities to speak and share the seminal work of NorthFork.

     • Inspire new ideas. Help NorthFork reach out in meaningful ways to draw millions of young people into our world of ‘we!’

     • Provide expert platform/application advice (i.e., WordPress, NING) to help NorthFork leverage it’s “all things servant leadership” role as a collector/disseminator of information and facilitator of communication.

     • Contribute to NorthFork’s servant leadership “wisdom bank.” It would be a GREAT help for you to recommend exceptional servant leadership-related sites and awesome materials (servant leader books, audios, videos, research, etc.) to help populate this Wisdom storehouse.

     • Nominate servant leaders for our “Hall of Fame.” It will highlight the work of others (some famous, others not so famous) and include pictures, videos, audios, access to research and potential thesis suggestions for school papers, and the like. We want it to be a place young and emerging leaders around the globe can go for inspiration. Perhaps you could nominate servant leaders for the Hall of Fame and write a short bio explaining how servant leadership plays/played out in their life (current servant leaders are welcome and highly encouraged!).

     • Set aside ten minutes every few days to respond to Leadership Forum questions, concerns, and situations.

     • Get actively involved in your local community’s service and leadership organizations like Kiwanis International, a global organization of members of every age who are dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. From where we stand, local service organizations, like Kiwanis, offer community leaders (moms, dads, entrepreneurs, teachers, administrators, public servants, etc.) opportunities to embrace and nurture servant hearts among the young and young-at-heart in their own community (this is an important lesson we learn from Native America and other indigenous cultures). In so doing, the young people develop a sense of belonging, that they matter to their community in ways many may have never known before. In turn, they grow the desire to return to their neighborhood and community after a few years away (e.g., college). When they return to their hometowns, families are strengthened, neighborhoods are strengthened, communities are strengthened, states are strengthened, countries are strengthened. When countries becomes strong again (in a brotherly love sort of way instead of a bully sort of way), the world is strengthened! But it all must first begin with adults responding to/reaching out to young people in their community. Let us know how you are doing, and how we can help!

     • Develop leadership in your community through service.

     • Become a Point of Contact for YOUR community (i.e., neighborhood, village, town, state, country, tribe)!

     • Take some time to express community need(s), satisfy need(s), and help us document the good others are doing for the world to see (in person, though community involvement, via social networks, newsprint, politics, etc.). Assert your voice as a platform for doing good works, around the block and around the globe!

     • Lead with love through community-based action(s) to create a world of ‘we!’
