Nonprofit Leadership Certification

Non Profit Leadership Certification

Program in development - look for it in 2014!

With the demand for a new generation of leaders to step forward in the nonprofit sector, and the ongoing need for low-cost training for current and future workers, HandsOn Central Ohio and Otterbein University announce a new partnership, beginning in 2014, to provide a Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership. Classes will be held at Otterbein's campus in Westerville, Ohio. 

Participants can earn this non-credit certificate by taking courses one weekend a month for nine months, and completing a 65 hour internship.

Courses will be offered the second weekend of each month: Friday 6:30 to 9 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $525.00 per three-month module; or $1675.00 for the entire program, including assistance and oversight with the internship.

Courses will be taught by HandsOn Central Ohio staff, Otterbein University faculty and administrators, and other local professionals.

"The demand for experienced, strong nonprofit leadership has never been greater, nor have the challenges non-profits face been more complex. Otterbein's Non-Profit Leadership Certificate responds to that need and gives leaders the knowledge and resources they need to be successful at a time when communities are counting most upon the services and support their non-profits provide."
