I Will Change the World By building Safer and Stronger Communities for our Youth Today!

There was a Time when I volunteered weekly for "The Center for Enriched Living" And it was also during this time that I realized that there were so many things wrong in this world that needed to change. There are children in this world who are suffering both mentally and physically and society does not care enough to end it. I decided that one day I would be one of the people in this world that would change that. I became part of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, because I wanted to learn the many ways in which a positive difference can be done. This program gives me the opportunity to gain experience from high ranking nonprofit professions as well as learn different techniques, ideas and opportunities in which I can become a better leader. 

Some day I hope to change the world, and this program will help me get started.

Though this campaign is complete, you can still join the team and make a difference by contributing here:http://asufoundation.org/NLA


According to a 2011 study by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA), there is a significant leadership gap in current and prospective nonprofit employees. This has had a major impact on not only nonprofits themselves, but also the communities they serve. The NLA strives to address this gap by preparing students to fill the roles of today and tomorrow's nonprofit sector needs. The mission of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is to strengthen the social sector with a talented and prepared workforce.


What is the NLASA?

The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Student Association (NLASA) is a group of students actively pursuing their Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) certification, formerly known as American Humanics. The CNP is a nationally recognized academic program sponsored by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. Students who graduate as Certified Nonprofit Professionals demonstrate a mastery in the marketing, management, & development of nonprofits and represent the top tier of nonprofit professionals. 

The NLASA aims to:

  1. Provide its members with tools that would enable them to attain managerial and executive positions in the nonprofit sphere.
  2. Present opportunities to actively address real world issues facing nonprofit organizations through case studies and group collaboration.
  3. Facilitate the creation of lasting relationships with nonprofit organizations, peers, and leaders.

Alumni from the ASU Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Student Association currently hold positions at organizations such as: Make A Wish, Boy Scouts of America, Boys and Girls Club, Iron Man, the YMCA, Phoenix Children's Hospital, Special Olympics, Best Buddies, and Foundations of various educational institutions.


What is AMI?

The Alliance Management Institute (AMI) is the largest national conference designed to prepare college students for a career in the the nonprofit field. The conference serves as a capstone experience for individuals receiving the CNP and is attended by upperclassmen, graduate students, and professionals dedicated to building and improving the future of nonprofit organizations. Students who attend AMI will have the unique opportunity of experiencing educational workshops, networking opportunities, and career development activities.


Inspire Change in Your Community by Investing in Nonprofit Students today!

Attending AMI is a learning experience that begins long before the conference starts. Aspiring Certified Nonprofit Professionals (CNPs) actively participate in a fundraising campaign to attend AMI, using knowledge and skills attained from their coursework. This year, 19 students will attend AMI 2016 in Houston, Texas from January 3 – 5. The cost of attendance is $1,600 person student, resulting in a goal of $30,000 for this year’s campaign.


We did it! 

  Published on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016 at 08:12 PM (MST)

Our campaign for attending the Alliance Management Institute for 2016 has just finished and we are beyond proud to say that we have made it to our $30,000 goal! Our future leaders will be leaving soon to go learn more about the Nonprofit Sector and become closer to being certified to change the world. It is only with the help of our generous donors that we were able to reach this goal together. Together we had over 160 people contribute to making the world a better place. Keep an eye out for another update from everyone in Houston. Thank you once again for making this goal a reality. 


We're almost there! 

  Published on Friday, Dec. 18, 2015 at 05:52 PM (MST)

It is with great pleasure that we get to announce that we are at 95% of our AMI campaign goal! We would like to take this opportunity to say Thank you to all of our donors for their support in our mission to become the best nonprofit professionals. In just a few short weeks, our future leaders will be on their way to Houston, Texas to learn more about networking, resource development, and more. It's not too late to support the cause! We still have 13 days left to reach the rest of our $30,000 goal. 


$20,000 and Supporting Others 

  Published on Monday, Dec. 7, 2015 at 05:34 PM (MST)

A huge Thank you goes out to all our supporters who have either donated or helped spread the word of our campaign. Together we have reached the $20,000 mark! But that's not the only thing our student have been working on this semester either!

While working hard to reach out AMI goal, our future leaders still commit time to helping others. For Make A Difference Day 2015, NLASA members partnered with HandsOn Greater Phoenix and YANA (You Are Not Alone) to make handmade fleece blankets for people living with cancer. Together the group made 77 blankets that will be included in comfort packages and delivered to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.

We take our community very seriously, which is why we want to become Certified Nonprofit Professionals and help change the world. With the support of our communities, we can do great things and keep continue to change the world. 




HALF WAY TO HOUSTON! 

  Published on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015 at 05:02 PM (MST)

We want to take this opportunity to Thank ALL of our donors for our 2015 AMI campaign. We have reached the $15,000 amount. This puts us at 50% of our goal and we are more than excited to continue our journey to becoming amazing Certified Nonprofit Professionals. Thank once again. 
Here is Alex Staroba telling us her thoughts on the NLASA and reaching the $15,000 mark.


Continuing Our Professional Networking 

  Published on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2015 at 09:05 PM (MST)

On November 23rd, our future leaders conducted this semester's Alumni Round Table. In the round table, students were able to ask questions from Certified Nonprofit Professionals that are currently working in the sector doing everything from event planning to fundraising and more. They were even featured in ASU's publication, the Downtown Devil to share their knowledge with a wider audience. 

These professionals provided their thoughts on everything from negotiating salaries to answering the toughest interview questions. The NLASA would like to extend their graditude to these alumni for their time and knowledge

As we are getting closer to our AMI dates, we are getting closer to our goal everyday. We just reached a good stepping stone. Check out this message from one of our amazing future leaders about her involvement in the NLASA and our goal. 




REGISTRATION! 

  Published on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015 at 04:06 PM (MST)

Thank you again to all of our donors who are helping us make AMI a reality. As January 3rd is getting closer, our future leaders are preparing themselves daily for this tremendous opportunity. This week our team has reached 25% of the fundraising goal! By reaching the $7000 mark, we can now cover the cost of registration for our students.

We still have a long way to go to be able to go to AMI, but our seats can now be reserved for workshops, case studies, and other activities. These are just three possible invaluable workshops our student can attend at AMI. Thank you again, everybody!


 




Ways we keep learning 

  Published on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015 at 04:01 AM (MST)

Supporters like to ask us what we do outside of the classroom to develop a variety of versatile skills. In our packed schedule the Alliance Management Institute's has our participants attending formal meals with Nonprofit professionals to practice dining and networking skills. To prepare ourselves, we attended a preparation etiquette dinner hosted by ASU's Career Services that teaches our future leaders how to handle themselves in formal meal settings. This allowed us to know the skills we will need for AMI and for our future careers. Even little things can make a huge difference and give us an advantage in the field. Having these helps us grow as people and professional leaders.
