I always try to share information about quality FREE training when available - and I'm happy (once again) to be promoting some GREAT FREE training that is available via the Foundation Center here in San Francisco.
Courses below can be effective for marketing and sales professionals (Crafting Effective Messages), project and program managers (The Secrets to Unlock the Power of Your Group), and start-up founders, staffing professions, recruiters and human resource professionals (Everything you need to know about volunteer recruitment)
There are some additional FREE classes available for folks interested in getting into non-profit (fundraising, budgeting, proposal writing, etc.) See details below on some of the upcoming FREE training classes available.
Hope some folks within my Examiner audience find this information beneficial.
