"This was the best educational experience I've had, bar none."
–  Program Participant Riel Peerblooms, Executive Director at Trail Blazer Camps

Senior-level leaders in the nonprofit sector can sometimes feel isolated, unsure exactly how to create an effective peer network, and, perhaps most importantly, how to receive honest feedback on their vision and leadership.

The Senior Leaders Program for Nonprofit Professionals provides an answer. A unique and transformative experience, the Senior Leaders Program is designed to help nonprofit leaders successfully develop their organization’s direction, policies, and programs — all while building an invaluable network of other nonprofit leaders.

This highly interactive 20-day program equips senior nonprofit professionals with strategic management and leadership skills. It is an opportunity for leaders who have mission-wide responsibility — people who are influencing the conversation about the organization’s future — to step back, see the big picture, and develop an actionable plan. They are afforded time to think strategically about how to deliver on their organization’s mission, both now and in the future.

Through intensive exercises, faculty interaction, executive coaching, and collaboration with diverse peers, the program creates a rich learning experience like no other. Participants learn to integrate theory and practice, giving them tools that are immediately applicable at their organizations.

The modular format — four one-week modules over four months — allows for real-time testing of ideas: roll them out over time, track progress, redefine the challenge, and discover the best solution.
