Seeking Projects for Minnesota’s Global Youth Service Day

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) March 06, 2014

Minnesota’s Global Youth Service Day is an effort to build a collective understanding and celebration of youth service statewide. The Minnesota Alliance With Youth has issued a call for Minnesota’s young people to register youth service projects to be recognized at the event on April 12. Long known for its ethic of service, Minnesota stands to again lead the nation in the number of youth-led service initiatives underway. The online registration deadline for all service projects is March 18. Register at http://www.gysd.org/randerson/global_youth_service_day_celebration.

Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), to be held April 12, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Mall of America’s Rotunda, is sponsored by the Minnesota Alliance With Youth and partner Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Activities will include hands-on service projects featuring local and global issues, and diverse youth performances from across the state.

From Aitkin to Zumbro Falls, young people across the state are putting together service projects that are impacting families and communities in need and teaching their younger peers positive habits and choices.

“Youth are integral to identifying and addressing community needs, and we are excited to hear from them about the critical issues they have been hard at work addressing across the state,” said Minnesota Alliance With Youth President and CEO Sarah Dixon.

The Minnesota Alliance With Youth is an organization committed to igniting the spark in young people in Minnesota to become actively engaged, develop strong voices, and acquire the skills needed for success in school, work and life.

New Blog Post by Pinnacle Strategies Shares the Negative Side of Multitasking in Projects

Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

Mark Woeppel, president and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, wrote a new blog post discussing the negative impact of multitasking. Every time an engineer, a designer, an operator – or anybody – has to switch from one task to another, valuable time is lost. When the former task is resumed, more time is absorbed coming back to speed or reconstructing the necessary tooling. On either end, the focus that makes work both efficient and rewarding is lost.

“We find that, in general, most project organizations have at least 50% more capacity than they actually need. But their capacity is lost primarily through the stopping and starting, the working out of sequence, the waiting, the set-up times – all of that comes out of not seeing where we are,” stated Woeppel.

Woeppel then explores full kit, a simple solution to help prevent employees from multitasking. This solution is made even easier to implement when using visual project management.
