Community Development Works, a program of The Rapides Foundation, is offering free skill-building training for Cenla residents and nonprofit organizations.
Workshops and webinars began in September and include a variety of topics including fund development, evaluation, community engagement and grant writing.
All workshops and webinars are available free of charge. The trainings are geared toward nonprofit staff, board members, volunteers, and people interested in starting a nonprofit. Training offerings are presented within four topic areas: Start-up Series for Nonprofits; Grant Writing Series; Evaluation Series; and Community Engagement Series. Participants are not required to attend all of the training courses in a series. Individuals can customize their learning by choosing topics that interest them.
