The Virtual Resource Issue
In this issue of “Spotlight,” SRCAC presents a curated list of opportunities for training, professional development, and well-being as many of us continue to work from home or with new office hours, provide services to children and families, homeschool, or a combination of all of these. Please check out this listing of podcasts and new and relevant virtual trainings from NCAC, SRCAC, and The Center for Nonprofit Excellence.

Finally, our colleagues at Tend Academy have shared some resources on maintaining focus and resilience during this challenging time.
