Effective communication skills and sound leadership competencies have never been more important for individual success and productivity in a dynamic work environment. However, many people never get a chance to receive quality instruction and targeted feedback about the communication flaws or leadership deficiencies that are holding them back. Custom, high-quality training is expensive. People from low socioeconomic backgrounds and the nonprofit organizations that serve them are often unable to afford high-quality, customized training. And yet, there is no doubt that targeted instruction can lead to big gains for people who want—and need—a leg up.

Critical Skills Nonprofit fills this gap by providing, at no cost, communication and leadership skills training through workshops, classes, and individual consultation for underserved populations throughout the nation.
