We believe that there is no shortage of diverse talent in the nonprofit sector and that all levels of staff, volunteers, and board members, deserve to continuously grow and transform through meaningful learning opportunities. We ensure quality programming through adherence to the guidelines of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, support and guidance from Virginia Commonwealth University, and by using curriculum grounded in the latest research. Further, the program assesses quality and effectiveness through continuous evaluation and community needs assessment.
The Nonprofit Learning Point staff includes two full time staff, one part-time student worker, and one leadership lead-faculty member. We contract with eleven skilled leadership coaches who have experience working for nonprofits. We also contract with over thirty faculty with expertise in their fields, experience in the nonprofit sector, and who continuously revise their curriculum based on the most current best practices. Twelve talented professionals volunteer their time, through committee work, providing critical guidance to the program and its curriculum. We are proud of the caliber of our staff, instructors, and leadership.
For over 18 years, Nonprofit Learning Point has been the only program of its kind – providing credit-bearing learning opportunities designed to respond to the specific needs of the nonprofit community. We offer over 80 classes a year in all aspects of nonprofit management and leadership, annual conferences on national trends in the nonprofit community, leadership development programming, and individual executive leadership coaching.
