Our Mission

Photo - WorkshopThe mission of the Non-Profit Staff Development Coalition Project is to help staff in non-profit human services organizations reach professional and personal excellence by protecting, nurturing, strengthening and enhancing the staff development function in their organizations.

This will be achieved by collaboratively working on three initiatives:

  • Initiative #1:

Staff Training
(This is the Coalition's primary focus. This would involve identifying unmet staff training needs and then designing, developing and delivering relevant training activities at minimal cost.)


  • Intiative #2:

Transfer and Application of Learning for Effective Job Performance
(Linked to Initiative #1 - this would involve assessing the transfer/application of knowledge and skills gained from staff training to the employee's job with effective results.)


  • Initiative #3:

Promoting, strengthening and reinforcing a consistent "learning culture" within Coalition member organizations.


All of these initiatives ultimately support and strengthen excellence in service delivery.



"We believe that learning is central and critical to what we do.
Continuous and progressive learning creates opportunities, challenges how we normally see and do things, builds understanding of our missionand strengthens community connections."
