Capacity Building Academy

Participants in the Capacity Building Academy will attend monthly sustainability planning workshops from January through August 2018. Organizations are asked to assessable a team of 1 to 5 participants who will participate in the Academy. Not all team members need to attend each session. Rather, you may want your board treasurer or bookkeeper/accountant to attend the sessions on strategic financing and have staff attend sessions on vision and desired results. Workshops will take place at First 5 San Bernardino on the third Thursday of each month from 9 am to 3 pm. Dates include January 18, February 22, March 22, April 19, May 17, June 21, July 19 and August 16, 2018. Graduates completing the Academy will complete a sustainability plan and make a presentation to a funders panel at the October 2019 THRIVE conference. Graduates of the Academy are eligible to participate in the IECC.
All participants in the Capacity Building Academy are required to complete an organizational assessment using McKinsey’s Organization Capacity Assessment Tool (OCAT). The IECC will customize the process and assist you in its completion. The only exceptions are organizations that completed an OCAT within the past 24 months.
