The Non-Profit Institute (NPI) offers a professional development non-credit certificate program for leaders and managers in non-profit organizations throughout the Shenandoah Valley. The Institute offers practical skills for effective leadership in your organization and includes 40+ hours of professional development instruction. Participants must complete at least 20 sessions, not including the Opening Session and Graduation, to receive the certificate in Nonprofit Management.

The event occurs on the second Tuesday of each month from October 14, 2014 until April 14, 2015. The course is limited to 25 students. The $400 fee includes all materials, a continental breakfast, and lunch. Registration deadline is August 15th.

Each course in the program is designed to:

- Promote the effectiveness of non-profit leaders, including executive directors, CEOs, managers, and Board members
- Refine the skills of experienced directors as well as help prepare entry level managers for new roles in the organization
- Enhance current job performance by providing a "tool box" of practical skills and knowledge for day-to-day operations
- Promote excellence in non-profit management
