Social Venture Partners Denver Launching New Nonprofit Leadership Program This Spring

Social Venture Partners Denver

Social Venture Partners Denver will be launching a year-long nonprofit leadership program this spring. The pilot program will be offered to a small group of executive leaders who wish to strengthen their leadership skills, deepen their personal impact within their organization, and broaden their professional reach across Denver’s nonprofit sector. The program will be an immersive and interactive nonprofit leadership growth experience that supports and inspires leaders, accelerating progress towards specific objectives.

Each participant will begin the program by completing an executive leadership assessment that will serve as a basis for setting individual goals to inform their year-long personal development plan. The program members will meet monthly over 12 months and use dialogue, thematic learning, and peer coaching to achieve their personal leadership development goals. Members will have access to the program’s two facilitators, and SVP’s 50+ partners can be available for specialized consultation and mentorship, as needed.

Participant Commitment

**$750 individual/organizational leadership investment

**12-month program including ten total sessions

**Full-day kick-off retreat in March

**5 in-person 90-minute sessions and 4 virtual 60-minute sessions
