Professional Development and Training


I prefer in-person training, do you offer that option? 

We host Nonprofit Labs in different cities across the country. Check out the dates and locations here.

What topics does your organization offer for training?

Workshop topics vary. For our online conferences and nonprofit labs, we post our workshop topics and trainers. It is best to browse the schedule of the particular nonprofit lab location or the date that you want to attend an online conference.

Our nonprofit does not have the budget to travel. Do you offer online training?

We host several online conferences a month. Check out the schedule and topics here.


I want to train with the Nonprofit Learning Lab.

We are always looking for qualified and engaging trainers to collaborate with us. To find out how to serve as a trainer, check out more details here. Some of our trainers are paid and some of our trainers volunteer their time. Whether a trainer is paid or volunteering depends on the length of the workshop. For those that are volunteering, we support them by providing a good dose of free marketing. We are looking for trainers on a wide variety of topics — nothing is really too narrow or obscure for us, as long it helps community-based nonprofits improve their overall effectiveness.

Do you offer continuing education units?

We offer continuing education units through CFRE. To learn more about what CFRE offers, please check out their website. 

Our nonprofit would like a customized training for our organization. Do you offer that? 

We do provide custom trainings for nonprofits and can train on any topic because of our extensive trainer roster. For more information, click here

How does the Nonprofit Learning Lab determine Nonprofit Lab locations? 

We determine our Nonprofit Institute locations based on program collaborations, requests from our own members, and established relationships in the community. Are you interested in having us host a Nonprofit Lab in your city? Please feel free to reach out to us at

Training Methodology 


How are your workshops developed? 

Our in-person and online trainings are developed and created with adults in mind and the methods and concepts for how adults learn best. Our Director Leah Weiner, Ed.D. has a doctorate in education with a background in adult education, curriculum design, and facilitation. Our workshops are also led by 100+ trainers from across the country who are nonprofit professionals, nonprofit consultant, experts, practitioners, and more. You can see a list of our trainers here.  Questions? Please email

Help! Life happened and I can no longer attend the event I registered for!
