Our Trainers

Dedicated Educators with Real-World Expertise

Our classroom and custom training curricula are developed and taught by top nonprofit and business leaders, content experts and educators who share real-world experience and subject expertise. Without their dedication to our mission we would be unable to provide you with the relevant, quality, affordable programs you have come to expect from the Nonprofit Leadership Center.

We recruit and deploy exceptionally talented and passionate trainers who are dedicated to providing training and solutions for our nonprofit organizations and individual professionals. And we’re not the only ones who think they’re top-notch; our students think so, too. The average rating for our trainers is 4.8 out of 5.0 in post-program surveys completed by participants.
