Nonprofit training opportunity takes you from passion to profession

Starting August 22, you can be a part of an intensive 10-month program that can change the course of your career for the better.

The Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership and Management program (CNLM) is for nonprofit professionals and volunteers who are ready to take their passion to the next level. The intensive, 10-month course is offered by The Center for Community Based and Nonprofit Organizations at Austin Community College, in collaboration with the Texas Association of Nonprofit Organizations (TANO),  and has graduated more than 200 alumni in six years.

Almost everyone enters the nonprofit sector to give a sense of meaning to their work. And that’s important to have because working or volunteering at a nonprofit can be less rewarding in other ways ($ahem$). But at some point, without proper training, you hit a wall in your understanding of the unique set of skills and knowledge you need to be a truly effective leader.

Nonprofits have special ethical situations, face unique government regulations and have stakeholders whose emotional considerations might bear as much weight as their more practical motivations. Balancing all of these is not for the faint of heart, so a program like CNLM can not only give you some ground to stand on, but also a network of professional peers to tap into for advice and support.

Classes start in August and meet once a month for a full day through June. Class size is limited and applications are being accepted now through August 16. Learn more about CNLM in Austin and apply here.
