Non-profit workers gather new skills
A total of 19 people have won certification in charity management.
The group graduated with a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, in partnership with The Centre on Philanthropy, YouthNet and The Bermuda Community Foundation.
Danielle Riviere, executive director for The Centre on Philanthropy, said: “The programme provides those currently working in the non-profit sector, board members or those interested in working for a non-profit, the opportunity to learn about all the critical elements of running a non-profit.
“We are in our third year of running the programme and welcomed our next cohort of sixteen for the 2019/2020 year on April.”
Clare Mello, executive director of YouthNet, added: “We have a responsibility to develop our replacements.
“By providing resources and opportunities, combined with mentorship and direction, we can leave our organisations in good hands.
“Mentoring not only helps organisations develop and retain diverse talent, but it also helps build a robust community of diverse talent for the future”.
The non-profit management course covered fundraising, leadership skills, marketing and volunteer development.
Participants were also matched with experienced operators from the charity sector in addition to classroom work.
The students learnt about budgeting, reading financial statements and strategy planning.
They also attended professional sessions to get hands on experience of the topics covered in the course.
The next course is expected to be held next year.
