A program combining professional development and spiritual renewal for North Carolina nonprofit leaders is seeking applications for its 2006-07 session.
Connecting Role and Soul is a program presented by the Brevard-based Center for Dialogue in partnership with the certificate program in nonprofit management at Duke University and the N.C. Center for Nonprofits.
Over 18 months, 24 attendees will form a group and attend five overnight retreats to participate in activities designed to “sustain spirit and strengthen vocational vitality.”
The sessions will be led by John Fenner, executive director of the Center for Dialogue, and Karen L. Jackson, a retreat leader and facilitator.
Applications from nonprofit staff or volunteer leaders will be accepted through Dec. 1 and selection will be based on balancing geographic locations, ethnicity, gender, length of service in the sector, and focus areas of the nonprofits represented.
Funding from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in Winston-Salem covers 85 percent of program costs, with attendees paying the remaining $400. Some partial scholarships are available.
