The goal of this program is to develop leaders who are able to sustain themselves and their organizations all while navigating the unique challenges of running a nonprofit organization. Participants will improve their own leadership capabilities and people management skills while also developing a robust toolkit to apply to the day-to-day challenges in their jobs. All core courses and special topics will be taught by experienced subject matter experts and practitioners from the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits (CEN), in partnership with the Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits (SVCN).
