One hour courses designed to introduce prospective and active partners to Foraker, the sector and our key concept of nonprofit sustainability.
These sessions are open to board, staff and volunteers who are interested in learning more about the skills required to build strong, effective organizations. People who attend the two-hour classes learn key concepts and definitions that help them understand their role in assuring the success of their organizations. We open our "tool kit" so you can see a sample of what's available to help your organization reach its goals.
From time to time, Foraker hosts special trainings or workshops to highlight an area of special interest to the sector.
Every few years, Foraker convenes its Leadership Summit to focus on a theme that is relevant to the Alaska nonprofit sector. Our first two summits, in 2008 and 2010, each gathered more than 400 people from all parts of Alaska to hear nationally recognized speakers address current issues.
This statewide program is offered in partnership with the University of Alaska and held in Anchorage. Developed by leading experts in nonprofit leadership and management, the program is designed for Alaska nonprofit professionals in leadership positions who want to enhance their management skills and explore a full range of issues and best practices to use in their organizations. It provides a network of faculty and peers to call on after the program ends and teaches theories and practices that can transfer directly from the classroom to the student's workplace.
This is BA program through Alaska Pacific University that includes students from APU's RANA (Rural Alaska Native Adult) program.
Whether you are on top of your game or looking to take your skills and knowledge to the next level, you will measurably enhance your results and your experience of life when you participate in this program.
