NTEN creates a world where nonprofits fulfill their missions through the skillful and racially equitable use of technology. We support organizations by:
- Convening and engaging nonprofit staff and those providing technology services and products.
- Offering professional credentials and training.
- Facilitating community skill and resource sharing.
- Directly coaching and training organizations working to develop new programs and technology projects.
NTEN was formed in 2000 out of the expressed need from a diverse community of nonprofit staff, technologists, funders, and technology companies for a convener and educational resource focused on the rapidly changing landscape of technology use for social impact. For the last 20 years, NTEN’s services and programs have evolved to meet community needs and support the growing sector. NTEN’s programs include: on and offline community groups, online courses, professional certificates, an annual conference, research, and resources, as well as cohort-based coaching and learning experiences at the intersection of technology and nonprofit work. Our programs serve nonprofit staff of all backgrounds, in all job types, and from varying organizational missions and sizes.
