Join the non-profit leaders who have taken the next step in their growth.

From our clients:

"I have had the privilege of completing the Management Training Foundations course and most recently the Leadership Development Program with Laridae.

Both programs certainly complimented one another providing timely and relevant information along with a wealth of tools and resources. I appreciated the optional opportunity to informally connect with the instructors and others in the program between each of the sessions. This allowed us to strengthen our learning through engaging conversations and shared experiences.

I look forward to continuing my journey as lifelong learner with other non-profit leaders through The Pier, Laridae’s newest online portal. "
