Nonprofit Leadership Academy


Our Nonprofit Leadership Academy (NLA) helps nonprofit executive directors and administrators develop best practices for strategic thinking, organizing, and dealing with change. This course is offered biannually.

NLA fosters supportive relationships among new and experienced executive directors while encouraging self-development and professional growth. Past participants have found tremendous value in getting to know their cohorts and discussing each other’s challenges and successes within their respective organizations.

Congratulations to the Nonprofit Leadership Academy of 2017, pictured here, for completing our six-session program in June 2017.

My participation in the Nonprofit Leadership Academy provided a great opportunity to gain insight and wisdom from several well-respected community leaders, as well as the staff at Leadership York. I was able to utilize many of the concepts that were explored and place them into practice at Penn-Mar. I would highly recommend this course for emerging leaders in the York community.
