Nonprofit Learning Center 2021

For 2021, the Nonprofit Learning Center (NLC) has launched a virtual series of trainings geared towards a variety of topics around nonprofit management and community impact.
 
This series will run from January – June 2021, and will continue offering exclusive learning opportunities for nonprofit leaders, board members, and staff to grow their skills, knowledge, and ways to impact our community.
 
NLC workshop series will focus on three tracks – Grassroots & Startups, Racial Equity, and Operational Continuity. These specific tracks were created to support your organization’s continued work in central Indiana. All three tracks are represented each month, and you can participate in one, two or all three sessions every month.
 
These events are open to everyone, but geared towards a variety of topics around nonprofit management and community impact. These events may appeal to these groups as well: 
• Nonprofit Founders
• Neighborhood Leaders
• Executive Directors
• Board chairs & Members
• Organizational Leadership and Staff
• Volunteer Coordinators
 
Reminder: This year the NLC workshops will be virtual, $15/session and are limited to 30 attendees per session.
 
Here’s what you can expect when you participate in an NLC workshop:
• Expert facilitators addressing the most relevant and challenging issues facing nonprofit organizations;
• Referrals to reliable and ethical consultants;
• Resources to help organizations improve their operations and increase their impact.
