The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance features a series of programs for students to get involved in. You can find information about these programs below!
The Student Funders Group
The NLA started the Students Funders Group project in 2011 with funding from the Women In Philanthropy Group at EMU to introduce students to the world of resource development and decision-making. Through this project students take on the role of philanthropic funders and provide grants to the community. The ultimate goal of this project is to strengthen the local community while training the future nonprofit workforce.
Information about the 2013, 2012 and 2011 projects can be found here.
The NLA Mentoring Program further enhances the mission of Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to empower, educate and prepare EMU Nonprofit Leadership Alliance students to strengthen and lead nonprofit organizations. The program pairs NLA students with seasoned nonprofit professionals to develop positive, safe, and effective mentoring relationships that are consistent, supportive and accountable.
