Nonprofit Programs at Center for New Leadership & Marlboro Graduate School

The Center for New Leadership at Marlboro Graduate School is a community focused program on exploring and applying new approaches to leadership. Working with nonprofits and mission-driven individuals, organizations, and coalitions, we build leadership capacity through teaching, coaching, and consulting.

  1. Develop new skills to expand your professional options?
  2. Create systems that help you or your organization work better?
  3. Measure what matters and show that your work is making an impact?
  4. Strengthen your board so they can support your organization effectively and efficiently?
  5. Connect with a supportive network of mission-focused individuals in our region?

Then Center for New Leadership programs may be for you. We work with individuals and nonprofits to help you figure out where you are, what’s standing in your way, and how to get to where you want to be. We do this through short workshops, longer certificate programs, and individualized consulting.

In addition, the Certificate Program in Nonprofit Management at the Marlboro College Graduate School supports nonprofit executive staff and trustees who wish to be outstanding leaders in their organizations and their communities.
