Even before COVID-19, technology was changing the way that every nonprofit pursued its mission. For many, the global pandemic has forced an acceleration of those changes. Jewish human service agencies are working with an increase in community needs and new challenges in how programs and services can operate. To address this dynamic, NJHSA and its Center for Innovation and Research are privileged to partner with NTEN, a Portland, Oregon based non-profit which provides extensive technology training and supports specifically designed to meet the needs of the non-profit sector.
NJHSA U.S. member agencies in good standing are encouraged to consider applying to participate in the next Nonprofit Tech Readiness (NTR) cohort, sponsored by NTEN. This training is designed for staff working in non-profit organizations as they strategically navigate digital challenges and opportunities.
Special appreciation is extended to The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for their generous funding support of this program. The Weinberg Foundation funding will fully cover the tuition costs for selected NJHSA member agencies.
The Nonprofit Tech Readiness is:
- A six-month online cohort program for 20 staff of eligible Jewish agencies and organizations (staff working in NJHSA member agencies, Jewish Federations and other Jewish agencies that have been supported by the Weinberg Foundation).
- For staff of any agency department, who want to gain new skills, build capacity for their agency and receive dedicated coaching on the most urgent technology needs.
The goal of the NTR training program is to elevate technology capacity significantly by strengthening participants’ knowledge of best practices for technology planning, budgeting, decision-making, and more while supporting each participant in advancing a technology project specific to their organization. Previous NTR participants have had a diversity of technology projects from developing their organization’s IT roadmap to securing internal systems, migrating databases to identifying new client management systems, and more.
You do not need to have a project in mind or underway already! Participants learn through courses and workshops, receiving advice and coaching from expert practitioners, and select projects when they are ready. All participants who complete the program are also eligible to receive additional training access for a colleague, continued coaching support, and to apply for a capital grant to support the costs of a technology project.
