Pre-Work

Several relevant articles will establish key concepts and ideas as a primer to the live event, and help you to identify questions and topics you want to explore further.

Knowledge Check

A brief quiz will reinforce what you've learned so far. Don't stress - it isn't pass/fail - it is just to help you remember and distill the concepts you read in the pre-work.

Live Event

This is a 90-minute intensive online training. Presented by expert faculty in a state-of-the-art interactive learning environment, there are opportunities to interact with the presenter and your peers in real time. And if you can't make the live session, you'll be able to access a recording.

Homework

Faculty, themselves experts with a wealth of nonprofit experience, have created exercises that will reinforce what you've learned and give you actionable steps to improving your organization.
