CEN Nonprofit Leadership Certificate Boot Camp


In response to COVID-19, CEN has moved all of our programs online, offering virtual training opportunities that merge fundamental best practices with crisis management resources and opportunities for peer-to-peer connections and support. Additionally, we're offering special discounts and payment plans to make these offerings increasingly accessible during this challenging time (details below).



About the Program

The nonprofit sector needs resilient and knowledgeable leaders to deliver integral services, especially now, amid COVID-19 related challenges and the subsequent impact of this pandemic. To address this need, CEN now offers our Nonprofit Leadership Certificate Boot Camp online. This course will give you the opportunity to learn from industry experts, explore the nonprofit business model, develop your management skills, and gain a robust toolkit of resources to excel and sustain yourself in a nonprofit career. Additionally, we'll be embedding timely content (coping resources, fundraising strategies, etc.) to address current challenges. All of our virtual offerings are designed to be supportive environments where participants can connect with peers during this difficult time and leave with strategies and skills to move forward.

The intensive Nonprofit Leadership Certificate Boot Camp is a 3-day, not-for-credit certificate course for new executives, managers, board members, and emerging professionals from the nonprofit sector.
