Non-Profit Organization Manager, Continuing Education Workforce Certificate
Like their for-profit counterparts, managers in non-profit organizations plan, direct, and control aspects of the organization's work to ensure the effective and efficient utilization of resources (including staff), so the goals of the organization can be achieved and the organization can survive and thrive.
They may assist in the organization's strategic planning, develop, monitor, and control budgets, and manage programs, staff, and other resources, as well as assist with fundraising, including grant writing, and the marketing and promotion of the overall organization and/or their unit/department.
Upon successful completion of this Continuing Education Workforce Certificate, students will be able to:
1. function more effectively in a management role at a nonprofit organization,
2. gain employment with a nonprofit organization,
3. apply the knowledge and skills needed to guide the growth and functioning of a new or existing nonprofit organization, and
4. assume responsibility for continued professional and personal development through continuing education.
CCBC Credential: Students will be awarded a Continuing Education Workforce Certificate and have access to a Continuing Education academic record (transcript).
