Our programming centers around professional learning and leadership development, with emphasis on supporting managers, executives and board members through convening, learning, and leadership opportunities.

Types of Events

Based on feedback from the community, we’re excited to facilitate opportunities for convening, and offer a greater variety of learning formats. 

Convening – By partnering together, we can help address important topics that need a network of support to change. This will be reflected in timely workshops on newly emerging trends, networking events and salons.

Learning – Workshops, day-long courses, and special events will expand skill sets and capitalize on talent through practical application for executives, managers, and board members.

Leadership – Leadership programs like the Emerging Nonprofit Leaders Program, Young Nonprofit Professionals Network RVA (YNPN), and board governance programming will equip leaders to create positive change in our region.
