The Emerging Leaders Program fosters talent among the next generation of nonprofit leaders.
NPW's Emerging Leaders Program is an 11-month professional development program that supports “emerging leaders” to grow their nonprofit knowledge, leadership skills, and expand their reach through networking.
“The program created an opportunity for me to cultivate new relationships with others in the nonprofit sector while strengthening my leadership skills. The growth from the experiences and discussions exceeded my expectations.”
— Juanita Pope, Director of Community Events and Office Manager, Child Care Council of Westchester
