Using Logic Models to Develop Your Non-Profit
The logic model is a tool that allows personnel in nonprofit organizations to build programs or offer services that are directly linked to their impact on the selected target market. It examines the resources, activities, and results that the organization will need to manage to successfully achieve its goals and objectives.  It also helps to clarify the criteria that an organization can use to evaluate program performance and effectiveness.

Goal Setting  

Do you think that setting and achieving goals is a question of special abilities or luck? Do you believe that only those who have skills or talents in this area can set their mind on something and simply get what they want out of life? Thankfully, it’s not a question of special abilities, luck, skill or talent. We all have this potential but we are not always aware of it. This workshop will assist you a step by step through the process of setting goals for your personal and professional life.
