Mass Access would like to help promote an excellent program for current and aspiring nonprofit leaders.
For almost a decade, the Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership has been providing nonprofit leaders with the skills, confidence and resources they need to make their organizations effective, innovative and sustainable. This mission is accomplished through a series of year-long certificate programs for executives, middle managers and high-potential emerging leaders. The result: in nine academic years, more than 700 students representing 400 nonprofit organizations have acquired new skills and expertise that have made them more effective nonprofit managers and leaders.
INML is affiliated with Tufts University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service which grants certificates for its major programs.
“When I was hired as the Executive Director at Cape Ann Television, my background was in the film/television industry. I knew that in order to run a successful nonprofit I needed additional business training. I looked everywhere for an affordable program that would provide fundamental business training for working professionals. Luckily, I found the CORE certificate program at the INML. It was an outstanding experience that gave me the specific knowledge I was seeking. I was in a class with 30 other nonprofit professionals studying things like accounting, how to work effectively with boards, and successful management techniques. The instructors were excellent, all with extensive professional backgrounds in nonprofit management. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to further their career in the nonprofit sector.”

“As a recently new manager of a non-profit, I found myself asking a lot of questions regarding the logistics of managing a company. Teaching myself how to run a smooth non-profit was a monumental task; I didn’t know the pieces I was missing. The INML program was exactly what I was looking for as an emerging non-profit leader. It gave me the base understanding of non-profit management plus the resources and support system to continue to grow well past graduation. I whole heartedly recommend this program to non-profit leaders.”

"I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Arts. When I began working at a non-profit community media station, I quickly realized I was well educated when it came to television production, but was lacking leadership and business skills to round out the role I was in. I was referred to the Institute for Non-Profit Management and Leadership’s Community Fellows Program, a free program that teaches management and leadership skills to non-profit workers. I am currently enrolled and am learning and practicing new skills in self–management, reading/creating financial documents, identifying knowledge gaps, and team building. I am in class with several other young nonprofit professionals and we have all benefited from each other’s shared experiences. This program has helped me grow in confidence and given me a wealth of knowledge and connections to draw from as I continue to advance in the non-profit sector. I would definitely recommend this program to individuals in community media because this program provides the skills and training necessary for longevity and adaptability.”
