Nonprofit Management Training Program

A collaborative initiative of Temple University Harrisburg’s Nonprofit Evaluation, Services and Training Program (NEST) and the Temple University Center for Social Policy and Community Development (CSPCD)

The Nonprofit Management Training Program aims to increase leadership skills in the nonprofit sector through workshops focused on seven subject areas: strategic management, human resource development, grant writing, fiscal management, program evaluation, leadership development, and special issues.

The program offers 60 hours of instruction divided into seven workshop series. Each workshop is led by a Temple staff or faculty member, or by a Temple-approved consultant, so you can rest assured that you will receive quality training. To make the Nonprofit Management Training Program accessible to people in both central and southeastern Pennsylvania, workshops are videoconferenced between sites in Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

Can’t commit to the entire program? No problem! You can take as few or as many of the workshops as you like.

The Nonprofit Management Training Program is open to emerging leaders in nonprofit organizations. These workshops are ideal if you are interested in becoming a coordinator or manager but have limited experience in proposal writing or in organizational development.

Please note: The program currently does not qualify for social work continuing education credits (CEs); generic continuing education units (CEUs) will be available for $15 per workshop series.
