Nonprofit Leadership Certification
Program in development - look for it in 2014!
With the demand for a new generation of leaders
to step forward in the nonprofit sector, and the ongoing
need for low-cost training for current and future workers,
HandsOn Central Ohio and Otterbein University
announce a new partnership, beginning in 2014,
to provide a Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership. Classes will be held at Otterbein's campus in Westerville, Ohio.
Participants can earn this non-credit certificate by
taking courses one weekend a month for nine months,
and completing a 65 hour internship.
Courses will be
offered the second weekend of each month: Friday
6:30 to 9 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost
is $525.00 per three-month module; or $1675.00 for
the entire program, including assistance and oversight
with the internship.
Courses will be taught by HandsOn Central Ohio
staff, Otterbein University faculty and administrators,
and other local professionals.

"The demand for experienced, strong
nonprofit leadership has never been greater,
nor have the challenges non-profits face
been more complex. Otterbein's Non-Profit
Leadership Certificate responds to that need
and gives leaders the knowledge and resources
they need to be successful at a time when
communities are counting most upon the
services and support their non-profits provide."
