What are the Learning Circles?
Learning Circles are 4-8 week series, limited to a small group of participants. The purpose of the Learning Circle program is to build nonprofit leadership skills through new information, facilitated discussion, and expansion of peer networks. The intent of this Learning Circle is to help young people connect with community nonprofit leaders and to be introduced to a variety of leadership skills that these leaders use regularly.
Learning Circles are limited to a small, intimate cohort. It’s recommended that you indicate your interest soon, as spots are expected to fill up quickly.
