_______________________________________________________________

Established in 2003, the Nonprofit Staff Development Coalition (NPSDC) is a collaborative project whose mission is to help nonprofit staff and leaders reach professional and personal excellence through thought-provoking workshops led by national and regional trainers/experts.

The NPSDC project was created and developed as a project of the Center for Learning Connections (CLC) – an established 40+ year workforce development organization whose mission is to create successful futures. In October 2017, the NPSDC project transitioned and is now integrated as a program of its new host organization, 501 Commons.
 
Fueled by the economic situation in Washington State in late 2002, particularly the severe, announced budget cuts in areas like human services, and with anticipated layoffs, the need for training – skill development and staff development – was great. Yet training was even more challenging to provide due to limited financial resources. The NPSDC project was created to help fill this void for employees in nonprofit organizations who serve tens of thousands of low-income children, adults, and families in the Seattle-King County area.

NPSDC is served by a Committee consisting of representatives of member organizations. NPSDC staff development activities include workshops and the transfer and application of learned skills that have a long-lasting, significant impact on service delivery, program coordination and management, and leadership development. The positive “ripple effect” created by NPSDC's mission and goal of staff development ultimately triggers, fosters, and promotes – through excellence in service delivery – significant improvement in the quality of lives of the disadvantaged children, adults and families being served. It also builds much needed capacity and long-term sustainability in member organizations.

Current activities include development and delivery of monthly skill-building workshops, an annual needs assessment, and the development of an effective “transfer of learning model” that will be implemented by member organizations to track the learning impact and skill-building outcomes on job performance and effectiveness.
