Register for our 2020 Leadership Development Program for Non-Profits

Lead with Confidence & Clarity

Laridae and the United Way Peterborough are each committed to building community leadership capacity and are partnering for the first time.

We are excited to be working together to provide this exceptional professional development opportunity for leaders for the first time, for the Peterborough non-profit sector.

How are we partnering? As Laridae continues to grow its training services, it has created the Leadership Development Program for Non-Profits and is offering it in the Peterborough region first. Working with United Way Peterborough, we have structured an opportunity for a scholarship program that enables small organizations to join at a reduced price.

You can learn more about the program and who it is for on the Leadership Development Program description page.
