Center for New Leadership Navigation

Programs

We serve the mission-driven sector of northern New England, including individual change-agents, nonprofit organizations, socially-responsible businesses, and cross-sector collaborations.

These are our programs:

Common Good VT

Common Good Vermont

Common Good Vermont serves as the “go to” resource for our peers to share resources, gain skills, and build partnerships, including such services as the Nonprofit Jobs Board, Vermont Nonprofit News, and a training and events calendar. It is also a reliable advocate for the nonprofit sector through statewide efforts such as the annual Nonprofit Legislative Day.

 

 

Nonprofit Management Certificate

Our renowned 80-hour program helps nonprofit leaders gain and refine the skills needed to strengthen their organizations and achieve their missions. The NPM Certificate program provides immediately-applicable training in the core competencies of nonprofit management. It is intended for people who want to make a serious investment in their not-for-profit careers.

“[It] was a great fast track option for busy working nonprofit leaders. The information was practical, the connections helpful and the faculty very experienced. I have a much more complete skill set to bring back to my workplace along with a renewed confidence for tackling tough issues in the nonprofit world.” —Certificate Graduate

 

Training, Facilitation, and Consulting Certificate

The Certificate in Training, Facilitation, and Consulting is a six-month certificate program designed for both experienced consultants, facilitators, and trainers, and also people who are moving into these roles. Our trainers model what they teach throughout the program and provide ample opportunities for you to practice, reflect, and improve your skills.

 

Fundraising and Development Certificate

Designed for small to mid-sized nonprofits, this six-month program will demystify fundraising and give you the knowledge and tools needed to create a development plan and fundraise successfully for your organization. You will learn in a collaborative and hands-on environment consisting of interactive trainings, peer-learning circles, and individualized coaching. 

 

Women’s Leadership Circles

The Women’s Leadership Circles of Vermont provide powerful women the space, support, and tools to lead with clarity and confidence. 

“The personal and professional camaraderie that develops is unique and will last well past the end of the WLC. Kerry is professional, knowledgeable, competent and most importantly a warm and genuine person.” —Past Circle Participant

 

Nonprofit Management Summer Camp
