As part of JCPA’s ongoing commitment to strengthening the JCRC field, we will be holding a virtual institute this summer to educate, inform, and empower. Over the course of multiple Tuesdays, we will offer three different series. Our training, led by our professional consultant Doug Kahn and key JCPA staff, will be 75 minutes in length. The classes will focus on:
- JCRC 101, The Building Blocks- geared to newer directors but is open to directors of any tenure. For this first series, we ask participants to commit to all three sessions.
- JCRC 202, Strengthening the JCRC’s Core- focused on key non-profit areas where directors have sought additional training. It is open to all directors and participants can join for 1, 2 or all 3 sessions.
- JCRC 303, Growing the JCRC’s Impact- intended for directors who want to expand their JCRC’s footprint, budget, support within the community. It too is open to all directors and participants can join for 1, 2 or all 3 sessions.
PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited to 20 participants per session.
