Connect Online Anytime with Your Constituents
How Nonprofits Benefit With Career Connection Learning Communities
Nonprofit organizations, now more than ever, have the ongoing challenge of making meaningful connections with their constituents. Potential funders and donors also want to see nonprofits reach their clients (and potential clients) in brand new ways. Technology is the patent answer — but that may come across as cold and inconsistent with your mission. How do you connect and keep your culture of warm, caring personal services that touch the heart and teach brand new skills?
Creating customized online learning communities that reinforce your mission. Many nonprofits have joined us in creating learning communities for both their current clients and graduates. These programs strengthen skills consistent with the purpose of your nonprofit.
Career Connection takes social learning and puts it ONLINE — not an-idea we invented — but it is a relatively new innovation that evens the educational play field…and it-works! Social learning allows your clients and staff to reach a greater audience for online, anytime learning. This technology also reduces costs—both in the overhead of classroom space and in the learner transportation expense. Students benefit with peer-to-peer learning and mentoring, which encourages continued learning and coaching long after the “program” is over.
By creating timely, interesting online courses that cover the basics while reinforcing your mission, you are building constituent loyalty, sponsoring continuous learning and saving resources!
