Masters of Human Resources & Organizational Development
I met a member of the NLA at an EMU Dean's dinner last year. She was very helpful in shedding light on the many opportunities present through the program. I knew I wanted to work in the nonprofit sector, but had no idea where to start. I felt like destiny had presented itself, in that NLA literally came to me without me seeking it out.
The NLA has impacted my life a tremendous amount. I found my internship through NLA and have been working with a nonprofit that feels like home now. I also have obtained an amazing network of individuals through the workshops I've attended thus far. My favorite part of being in the NLA is the people involved in the program. They understand why the nonprofit sector is so important, which is something not always understood by individuals working in for profit industries. I look forward to completing my certificate and giving back to the program in the future!
