Nonprofit Executive Leadership Institute

We believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and the power of people to transform their lives. We are committed to the growth of nonprofit and community leaders because we believe in their passion to change the world.

Our role is to help leaders gain the knowledge and skills they need to become effective agents of change. We also recognize that change is hard work and leaders can easily feel isolated.

Since 2005, NELI has been conducting two intensive leadership development certificate programs.  We use a cohort-based model in our programs in order to build strong connections among community leaders. We offer a learning environment that uses experiential learning techniques and encourages participants to immediately apply new theories and technical skills to challenges within their own communities.
