They also engage in personal development modules led by EAP Bermuda Executive Director Latisha Lister-Burgess.
Dr. Myra Virgil, congratulated the graduates on behalf of the Bermuda Foundation, and said, “It is exciting to know that this latest cohort will join the larger group of alumni, increasing the scale and scope of nonprofit professionals who have the capacities to do the tough work of managing a nonprofit – while pursuing social mission.”
The Introduction to Nonprofit Management Certificate is an introductory level programme that exposes learners to key current management issues faced by nonprofit organisations. The programme’s goal is to strengthen nonprofit leadership by equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills to manage, sustain and scale a successful nonprofit organisation. The cohort model enables participants to collaborate, discuss and process the course materials together, while making the programme affordable and accessible to all. Enrollment for the 2024 Cohort has opened. The Application is available online, and a recorded Information Session can be watched. The application deadline is February 16, 2024.
Dr. Nicola Paugh, Executive Director of the Nonprofit Alliance added “this programme is a key to our vision of building a strong and sustainable nonprofit workforce pipeline in Bermuda. We are so proud of our 2023 graduates. We also encourage all nonprofit leaders to consider who from their teams can participate in this important leadership training to ensure we are constantly building the next generation of capable nonprofit leaders.”
