This immersion program weaves together the learning circle model with elements of professional development and mentorship. Through facilitated leadership development, discussions with community leaders and mentors, and informal networking, this immersion program will:

  • Advance understanding and practice of leading in the nonprofit sector.
  • Strengthen network of nonprofit colleagues through peer-to-peer learning and support.
  • Deepen understanding of leadership capacity through gained leadership skills.

Each of the immersion sessions will be followed by a one-hour happy hour session from 4-5pm with beverages and snacks, and will be a space for both informal networking and curbside mentoring. Community leaders will be invited to serve as mentors in areas of self-care, human resources, nonprofit strategy, leadership and career development, time management, capacity building, and fundraising.
