Learning Communities

As a hub of non-profits, we know that our membership includes intelligent, collaborative and thoughtful minds. We put those minds to work with three peer-learning communities: Volunteer Engagement, Evaluation, and Social Innovation. Our learning communities provide regular forums for individuals to dive deep into topics, share knowledge and best practices, and develop strong networks.
