Learning Labs

Learning Labs are a training series consisting of six module cohort-based sessions that provides a deeper dive into a specific Key Area of Nonprofit Excellence, where knowledge gained from workshops can be applied to improve management performance. Through these hands-on modules, NPCC provides a comprehensive and impactful program that benefits both nonprofit leaders and the organizations they serve. Program participants, who tend to be their organization’s “accidental experts” in a given area, leave the series equipped with practical strategies and individualized tools that they then use in their day-to-day work to improve their organization’s practices and an expanded network of peers in their field.

NPCC Members and non-members are welcome to apply. Each module will consist of a cohort of 40 individuals who will be selected from the initial pool of applicants. We strongly encourage that two team members from your organization participate, as we believe it will allow for a much more fruitful experience for your organization.
