Applications for graduate-level certificate programs available!

The Providers' Council is now accepting applications for its popular Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program, which will start in the fall.

This yearlong, graduate-level program is designed for mid-career human service professionals who seek to strengthen their management skills and learn in specialized, sector-specific classes with peers from other human service agencies. The program is offered in partnership with Clark University in Worcester and Suffolk University in Boston.

The Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program is composed of six mandatory blocks of classes that begin in August/September 2016 and end June 2017. Classes meet once a week -- Wednesdays at Clark and Fridays at Suffolk -- from 9 a.m. to 4 or 4:30 p.m. Download the application here.

Classes include:

  • Nonprofit Human Service Management
  • Financial Management
  • Program and Policy Evaluation
  • Human Resources Management
  • Legal & Ethical Issues for Nonprofits
  • Alternative Revenue Strategies for Nonprofits

The curriculum is designed to allow students to immediately apply what they are learning in the classroom to their work in the field. In addition, the yearlong program offers students a unique opportunity to grow their network of peers and connects them with other human services managers and leaders to support the sharing of ideas. The program has also served as a stepping stone for those students who wish to continue on to a master's degree.

Seats are limited, so apply today. If you have questions, please e-mail Liz Woodbury or call 617.428.3637 x125.
