    St. Augustine, Fla. - Nonprofit professionals and volunteers who want to create a positive impact on the community can now earn a Certificate in Nonprofit Management through Flagler College’s Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) program.

    Nationwide, the nonprofit sector is facing staffing challenges. Florida has more than 96,000 nonprofit organizations registered with the IRS, and personnel with organizational and philanthropic development knowledge are in demand. 

    “We’ve had requests from nonprofit employees and volunteers who are interested in improving their management and leadership skills to create a greater impact,” said Ann Ashworth, ACE program coordinator. “Even for those who hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree, the certificate in nonprofit management can give them an edge in the marketplace.”

    The self-paced, online curriculum helps prepare students to support and influence the direction of organizations with initiatives such as human and youth services, the arts, sports, conservation and more. Non-degree-seeking students and professionals can earn valuable CEUs in the certificate program of 11 courses that include grant writing, fundraising, budgeting, volunteer development, marketing and social media. 

    “The vision of the ACE program is to serve the community’s staff development and continuing education needs,” said Jorge Herrera, director of Adult and Continuing Education. “We offer this certificate to support nonprofit organizations with advanced skills for staff, employees and volunteers.”
    Registration for the Certificate in Nonprofit Management suite of 11 courses results in a 40% discount over taking the courses individually. For more information or to register, go to www.flagler.edu/adulted/npm , email professionaldevelopment@flagler.edu or call 904-826-8643.
