PEP is partnering with Linkages to Learning to provide Spanish language parenting classes in five Montgomery County Public Schools this year. We are currently seeking bilingual parents who are interested in working with PEP on a contractual basis to deliver parenting workshops in locations throughout Montgomery County. If you are bilingual, have transportation, and either have presentation skills or an interest in developing presentation skills, please contact Elizabeth Gelfeld at Elizabeth.Gelfeld@PEPparent.org.
Last year we piloted MORE: Metrics and Outcomes for Responsible Evaluation, a training paired with an individual consultation that focuses on evaluation of program outcomes.
We are pleased to announce the creation of the Nonprofit Impact Series, which builds on and continues the learning from FIRM and MORE. The series of workshops provides insights and hands-on tools that encourage nonprofit accountability, sustainability and program excellence. While most nonprofits might get started by enrolling in either FIRM or MORE, the series provides flexibility to attend the sessions that are relevant and timely. Sessions are open to staff and board members from all nonprofits working in Montgomery County.
In addition to the series of workshops listed below, two new versions of FIRM will be offered. FIRM for Program Directors (February 1, 2018) is a day-long workshop that introduces program directors to important financial concepts, such as understanding how a budget is created and understanding indirect costs. It prepares program directors to make informed contributions to the nonprofit budgeting process and provides future leaders with a basic understanding of nonprofit accountability and sustainability.
FIRM for Emerging Nonprofits (April 19, 2018) is designed for nonprofits that are just starting up and small nonprofits (budgets under $400,000). The training introduces nonprofit leaders and board members to financial best practices for greater accountability and sustainability.This is a full day training for up to four staff and board members from each nonprofit, plus an individual consultation with a nonprofit financial expert.
