CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is requesting proposals for a one-year service partnership with a local nonprofit organization. Organizations throughout the Cedar Valley are encouraged to apply through a Request for Proposal (RFP), which can be found at The RFPs are due to Julianne Gassman, associate professor in the UNI Department of Health, Physical Education and Leisure Services, via email at by 5 p.m., Friday, April 29.

The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is dedicated to transforming today's students into tomorrow's nonprofit leaders. One of the ways the student organization seeks to transform these students is by offering practical experience.

Nonprofit Leadership Alliance students have assisted the Black Hawk County Long Term Recovery Committee in calling families affected by the floods of 2008 to direct them to additional resources. They have also planned and implemented free health screenings and health-education fairs at East and West high schools in Waterloo. This year, they organized "Up with Families," which provided a weekend of fun for families who have children with a disability.
