Registration for a new nonprofit leadership certificate course offered by John Abbott College’s continuing education department closed last Thursday after the program quickly reached its maximum number of participants.

The course, which begins January 11, is a partnership between John Abbott and West Island Community Shares (WICS), a non-profit organization that raises funds for 40 local community groups.

Sophie McCann, executive director of WICS, said the leadership course will be offered again from April 5 to May 28.

McCann was pleasantly surprised by the high demand for the course. “We had planned for around 20 people, but we increased that number to 25, then 30, before (registration) closed,” she said.

In an interview with the Montreal Gazette last week, McCann said the purpose of the 28-hour certificate course is to develop future leaders in the community sector, which includes nonprofit organizations.

“The pandemic has forced many people to question some of their life choices and may be looking for a career change,” she said. “This program will help them move from what they are currently doing to a new challenge.”

The program will cover topics such as good governance practices, leadership, strategic planning, human resources, financial management, fundraising and donor management.

The trainers are McCann, Marlo Turner-Ritchie, founder of Social Impact Consulting, and Yves Picard, general manager of Carrefour jeunesse emploi Ouest-de-l’Île and CJE Marquette.

The cost is $695 plus tax. For more information on registration, visit JAC’s Continuing Ed. website .
