SAVANNAH, Ga., — A new certificate program will be offered on the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus as part of a partnership between the Division of Continuing Education and the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies. The certificate will be awarded upon completion of the Nonprofit Management and Leadership Workshop Series, which will take place Oct. 5-9 at the Armstrong Center.
The five-day program focuses on practical skill building and covers a range of management principles including board governance, budgeting, grant writing, strategic planning and volunteer management, among others.
“As we work through the COVID-19 crisis, the nonprofit sector landscape is experiencing dramatic shifts in a number of key areas such as service delivery, fundraising and philanthropy, and volunteer management,” said Trent Davis, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies. “This strategic partnership will allow us to bring practical, relevant and timely skills-based training to nonprofit professionals in Savannah and surrounding areas.”
There are also drop-in rates available for those looking to hone a specific skill to better serve their organization and hardship rates for those who qualify.
