Partnering with Northampton Community College on the Certificate in Nonprofit Management

Northampton Community College logo

The Nonprofit Center’s Certificate in Nonprofit Management is back at Northampton Community College. Residents of the Lehigh Valley area will, once again, have convenient access to ten full-day classes that comprise our signature Certificate in Nonprofit Management at NCC’s Bethlehem Southside campus, in the Center for Business and Industry.

“For years, employees and board members from Lehigh Valley nonprofits, as well as those interested in pursuing careers in our growing nonprofit community, have had to travel to Philadelphia to take advantage of the top tier educational opportunities The Nonprofit Center offers,” said Lauren Loeffler, NCC’s Vice President of Workforce Development and Community Education. “We are pleased to make these programs available locally and at a reasonable cost,” she added. Dr. Laura Otten, Executive Director of The Nonprofit Center, said, “We are delighted to bring this Certificate back to NCC where it has experienced such great success.”

The Nonprofit Center offers more than 70 educational programs in the Greater Philadelphia area every year. “NCC and The Nonprofit Center are well matched in that we both insist upon small class size for maximum interaction and learning opportunities, we’re both committed to making our programs accessible to our audiences, and we are both committed to professional development,” Otten continued.

Classes will be taught by the same professional instructors who teach in Philadelphia and Bucks County, using the identical curriculum.

Students can earn 6.0 Continuing Education Units, the recognized measure used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by various professional bodies and licensing boards as evidence of skills pertinent to particular occupations. This Certificate has justifiably been noted proudly on participants’ resumes.

The courses will be offered at Northampton’s Fowler Family Southside Center at 511 E. 3rd St. in Bethlehem.  To register, go to NCC’s website or call 610-332-8678.

I took the Certificate because it touched on every aspect of the nonprofit environment and provided up-to-date information that I will use at my current position…”
