The University of St.Thomas' Center for Nonprofit Management
is again offering an exciting learning opportunity for neighborhood organization volunteers and staff.
Created in collaboration with the NRP and the Metropolitan Alliance for Community Centers (MACC)
and presented for the first time in spring 2001, the Community Leadership Institute is a certificate program designed to provide comprehensive leadership training to neighborhood volunteers and community organization staff. The Community Leadership Institute's unique curriculum makes it possible for those who are attending their first class in a university setting to learn side-by-side with emerging leaders who hold advanced degrees. Participants in the program earn a Certificate of Completion after successfully completing two semesters of the program.
Semester one of the institute begins Tuesday, January 21, 2003 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and continues for 12 Tuesday night sessions through April 8. Topics covered in semester one include: building an effective board, project management, fund raising and improving communication skills.
Semester two of the institute, which is open to those who have completed semester one, begins Thursday, January 23, 2003 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and continues for 12 Thursday night sessions through April 10.
