Through generous contributions from the Scranton Area Community Foundation and the Moses Taylor Foundation, the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence is able to offer a number of training programs to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations servicing Lackawanna County.

Since some of the training programs have a limited number of seats and since the Center aims to ensure that as many nonprofit organizations in our area can benefit as possible, there may be an application process for particular trainings. Each individual from a nonprofit organization must separately apply for the training programs, so an organization cannot apply for multiple individuals under a single application.
