Workshops & Training

Nonprofit and youth-serving organizations are critical ingredients in creating the U.P. communities which we all call home. But, operating one of these organizations in the best interest of the communities they serve involves a lot more than just getting a tax-exempt status from the IRS or holding an annual meeting.

GLCYD is here to help. We offer workshops and training opportunities that help your organization deliver on your mission powerfully and intelligently. These capacity-building topics touch on issues such as building an effective and engaged board, fund development, nonprofit marketing and technology.

These nonprofit building opportunities are delivered in a variety of ways. Some workshops are delivered traditionally in a face-to-face group settings. Others are delivered as Webinars to help bridge the challenges of geography and time. GLCYD also develops and delivers tailored training opportunities to individual organizations.

Contact us to discuss your organization and how GLCYD can best help meet your needs.

Poverty is not only an economic state, but is also a cultural mindset. Understanding some of the distinct cultural differences can help us serve those in poverty in better ways. Seeing things in a different perspective and mindset can give us clues to how information is processed or viewed differently and can lead to more effective communication. Your own biases and misunderstanding will be challenged in an effort to change your perspective and help you serve more effectively.
