Nonprofit Leadership Certificate Boot Camp
This 3-day intensive course is your opportunity to enhance your resume and gain the skill-set and resources needed to be an effective manager in the nonprofit sector. Participants will learn from industry experts, develop management skills, and gain a robust toolkit of strategic and tactical skills to easily apply in a day-to-day nonprofit job. The course covers leadership, nonprofit financials, strategic development and operational planning, fundraising, and governance. Our goal is to develop leaders - at all stages - who can sustain themselves, deepen impact, and excel in this sector.

"My experience with this program provided me with valuable training that boosted my confidence and helped me to feel ready to take on an important leadership role. Creating a vision and serving the mission of your organization, working effectively with a board of directors, strategic planning, raising critical funds for programs and services, and providing strong financial stewardship are all vital topics of the class that have served me very well as a new executive director. This well-rounded class touched on every aspect of becoming the leader you want to be - the leader that's inside all of us." - Lisa Rock (Executive Director, Palo Alto Community Child Care)
