YOUNGSTOWN — A group of 10 Youngstown State University students in the Center for Nonprofit Leadership recently participated in a full-day immersive consulting project with the Children's Museum of Cleveland. 

The students identified solutions to organizational challenges facing the museum, including strategic planning, member to donor conversion and social media.

Local students participating in the project were Amanda Paynter, Clifford Hill and Shannon Arnim, all of Youngstown, and Katherine Landry of Poland.

"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, " Laura Dewberry, director of Center for Nonprofit Leadership in YSU's Williamson College of Business Administration, said in a news release.
