PROGRAM

The second cohort of the Thrive Accelerator focuses on helping organizations engage leading practices in program design, community engagement, board development, fundraising, storytelling, and HR/operations with a racial equity lens.  Organizations will spend concentrated time (2 hours, once a week, for 8 weeks) planning and executing real-time solutions with guided facilitation. Teams of boards and staff come together to look at their organization holistically and then apply what they are learning to their specific context.
