Q & A

Program staff- request for insights, with contact info!

Dear CNRG'ers,

I'm wrapping up a scan of innovation in the nonprofit sector and need to gather just a little more information on how programs are created in nonprofit/public organizations.

As I've drilled down into how innovation happens in nonprofits, I've centered the work on program design. But here's the big question:

How do program leaders learn to design the programs they create?

Did you learn on the road? In a class? By watching others? Mentoring? Self-taught? Making it up as you go along?

I'm interested to hear stories and anecdotes of how you came to do the work you do, and even what you wish you'd known in hindsight.

ReBuilding Center Amazing Volunteer Opportunity Monday, August 25!

The ReBuilding Center has received an amazing one-day only opportunity to receive a fabulous donation of racking!

If you can help, please call Tom at 503-260-5805 to let him know you're coming. Or just show up at The ReBuilding Center's front desk on Monday.(Ask the cashier for more info.)
