Our HandsOn Leadership Faculty Are Conspiring to Make This Year Even Better September 13, 2012

What do two fundraising professionals, one project management expert, one conflict management extraordinaire, and a community engagement specialist have in common? And how did we get so many talented people in the same room at once?

They all represent part of our HandsOn Leadership faculty and they all met at Seattle Works last night to make this year’s HandsOn Leadership trainings better than ever. Over hummus and veggies we talked about goals for this year, the different ways adults learn, what went great in last year’s trainings, and what we’re going to be doing better this year.

HandsOn Leadership is a twelve hour course that gives volunteers the tools to be project managers and leaders in the nonprofit community. We’ve found amazing faculty to give the trainings, all who are experts in their fields and excited about sharing their knowledge with Seattle’s emerging leaders.

The course consists of:

  • Project management 101
  • Introduction to Conflict Management
  • Basics of Working with Nonprofits
  • Best Practices in Community Engagement
  • Fundraising 101
  • Volunteer Management 101
