Emerging Leaders

FamilyWise helps coordinate the Nonprofit Emerging Leaders Academy (NELA). NELA is a collaborative effort between nine Twin-Cities nonprofits to develop emerging talent within the nonprofit sector. Over the past five years, NELA has grown to promote cross-sector collaboration and relationship building, seeing alumni advance in their careers and gracefully meet the unique challenges of our sector. Applications are now open for this year and each agency’s staff are applying. Two participants will be chosen from each organization.
