Nonprofit Training Institute

A group of participants from the 2023 Nonprofit Conference.

The Nonprofit Leadership Institute at Montgomery College's mission is to inspire our students to make a difference in the community. We strive to enhance your skills within the functions of nonprofit organizations and bring together the resources and tools organizations can take advantage of.

We offer a growing mix of courses and events designed to enhance the skills of experienced and new nonprofit professionals. Individual courses are tailored to specific topic but are open to all students with all levels of experience and we encourage you to expand your network. Keep the conversation going before, during and after your courses: Follow us on Instagramnew window and Facebooknew window.
