Our Program Overview

Executive Management Certificate - Rising executives (middle management) face unique challenges in establishing themselves as leaders. In the Bronx, we know nonprofit executive-level turnover is high, and many rising executives end up taking their skills, experiences, and talents to Manhattan. This ten-month training program helps these emerging leaders address real organizational and leadership challenges they confront so that their learning is applied and helps boost their track record for success. Participants also join a network of peers upon completion.

Leadership Development Peer Learning Networks - Cohort based - Peer Learning Networks (PLNs) are considered a valuable emerging approach to strengthen nonprofit capacity. Through six months of facilitated peer-to-peer interaction, and a curriculum largely designed by the participants, Bronx nonprofit leaders can learn valuable lessons and build skills in ways that support their leadership success while also fortifying their capacity to address specific issues Bronx nonprofits face.

Executive Directors Breakfasts and Speaker Series - In addition to expressing interest in more intensive offerings, Bronx nonprofit executive directors have increased opportunities to network with each other, and have access to outside expert speakers who share the latest on emerging nonprofit innovation. So much enthusiasm has been expressed for these meetings that they are now open to all interested parties. For a list of our past Breakfasts click here.

Capacity Building Workshops and Training - CBNP’s workshops in key areas of organizational management, such as planning and assessment, are in high demand. Workshops include: Microsoft Excel for Nonprofit Professionals, Effective Grant Writing, Data Evaluation, Leadership Transitions & Mergers, Board Development, and Time Management for The Millennium.

Public Conversations - One of CBNP’s most sought after offerings, these conversations bring the public, government officials, industry representatives, nonprofit practitioners, and funders together to share information, network, discuss issues and explore possibilities for collective action.
