If you and your organization are in the business of doing good, then the business of Thrive South is to remove the obstacles that might stand in your way. In many cases, leaders of a social impact agency (nonprofit) know what to do, but they may not know how to do it or the most efficient way to do it.
Mentoring and Individual Education Thrive South provides mentoring and individual education in the following areas:
Developing a diverse and engaged board
Grant writing (Mentoring program enrolling for August 2019. Email for information.)
Start-up and Implementation
Board management and preparation
Mentoring or individual education are very effective ways to help someone gain the fundamental skills in nonprofit management and establish their knowledge accurately, quickly, and deeply. Clients participate in small groups and/or individual sessions over four to six months and get the full breadth and individual attention to ensure they have mastered each vital topic and skill. We recognize that some things are difficult to teach in a few hours in a class setting when hands-on explanation and on-demand access are much more helpful.
Speaking and Training I offer presentations lasting from 30 minutes to three hours on many topics relevant to nonprofit and social impact organizations, including:
Ethics in Social Impact - "Navigating Ethics- Or, What to do when you are between a rock and a hard place"
Outcomes Assessment- "Navigating Evaluation- Or, Are you doing what you said you would do, and are you doing it well?"
Board Development and Diversity- "Navigating Leadership Diversity- or, Why are we still having this conversation in the 21st Century?"
Start-up and Implementation Founders and new organizations come to Thrive South at many different points in the journey. My level of support and fees for start-up assistance vary based on the program's needs- from talking over a cup of coffee and a muffin to contracting full start-up support.
