Feel the Pull of the Classroom

classroomWhen it comes to September, it simply doesn’t seem to matter how old I am, I still feel the pull of the classroom! This is my favorite time of the year! Part of the appeal is the idea of a fresh start, a new academic school year and chance to master something new and challenging. I am so fortunate to be in just the right position for my passion for learning! How about you? Do you feel the longing to learn a new skill as you walk down the aisles of stores with neatly stacked school supplies? I know that in September I expect more of myself and not even the calendar change in January to a new year has the stuff of magic of September. Whether it is the eddying leaves, the brilliant blue skies or the satisfying crunch of the first fallen leaves, September dazzles me and reawakens my vow to never stop learning.

I said all of that to say this, give in to the pull of the classroom! Whether you learn something new and fun like a personal hobby or decide to boost your career with training specific to your nonprofit position, now is the time to get moving to register for classes. Visit our website and study all available classes from September to December.

If you are seeking professional development for your career in a nonprofit keep your eye on this blog as new classes are promoted here according to what is requested by the students who come to Grants 101 and Nonprofits 101. Some classes are listed in the program guide but I have the ability to be nimble and agile in response to what my student’s request. I can’t always anticipate what new topics students may want to explore, but I am able to develop curriculum quickly with all of the resources available to me through the library. If there is something specific that you would like to learn don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at
