JCC to Launch Non-Profit Leadership Microcredential

Published: August 02, 2021

Jefferson Community College (JCC) announces the launch of a new microcredential program in non-profit leadership. Microcredentials are designed to be meaningful and high-quality education programs that verify, validate, and attest that specific skills and/or competencies have been achieved. They differ from traditional degrees and certificates in that they are generally offered in shorter or more flexible timespans and tend to be more narrowly focused.

JCC’s non-profit leadership microcredential program will run 15-weeks with classes beginning August 31, 2021. Classes will meet six hours per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Instruction includes a combination of in-person and remote learning. During the non-profit leadership program, students will learn about the roles of board members, community stakeholders and organizational leadership; public governance; accounting skills; the role of non-profits in the community; and, the responsibilities of leadership and how it applies to non-profit organizations. 

Upon successful completion not only do students receive a microcredential, but they also earn nine college credits. Credits may be transferred to a degree or certificate program at JCC if the student later decides to further their education. 

The non-profit leadership microcredential is intended for current and future employees of non-profit organizations, and anyone who is interested in a career in the non-profit sector may enroll. There are no prerequisites. Cost is $2133 and federal financial aid may be available.
