News Applications now open for the Council’s Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management program beginning this fall

Applications are now open for the Providers’ Council’s Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management program beginning this fall!

This year-long, 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 Suffolk University in Boston. This year, the program will be offered both online-only and in-person (the in-person cohort will begin online and move to the classroom once it becomes safe to do so.)

The Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program is composed of five mandatory blocks of classes that begin in September 2021 and end in May 2022. Classes meet on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The curriculum of the Certificate Program is designed to build skills and knowledge in these key areas so that students can immediately apply what they are learning in the classroom to their work at your agency.

Students who successfully complete this program and who already have a bachelor’s degree may be eligible to transfer credits toward a graduate degree. Students may earn the equivalent to nearly one-third of the credits needed for a Master of Public Administration, giving them a jump start on the credits, time and cost associated with pursuing a master’s degree.

The deadline to apply for the Certificate Program is Friday, May 28th. You can fill out our online application here, or click here for a printable version. This program frequently sells out, so complete an application today!

For more information, please visit the Certificate Program page on our website. If you have any questions, please email Eliza Adams, or call at 508.598.9700.
