2024 Leadership Cohorts

NetworkPeninsula / 2024 Leadership Cohorts

For details on specific Cohorts, click here. For application, click here.

NetworkPeninsula is offering a Series of Cohorts designed to meet nonprofit leaders where they are in their careers, and where they hope to be!

All Cohorts will follow a four-pillar approach:

• Leadership Coaching
• Instruction
• Peer-to-Peer Learning
• Mentoring


These 5-month Cohorts will consist of a combination of in-person and virtual sessions involving expert instruction and peer learning. Individual and group coaching will be provided every month and will be scheduled directly with participants once accepted into the program. Following program completion, the participant will be matched up with a mentor, if desired, who will meet with the participant for up to 3 months. Each cohort will be limited to eight participants. All cohort participants will engage in monthly instructional, peer to peer learning, and coaching sessions that will focus on designated topics relevant to leadership and experience level. Each session will be facilitated by an experienced instructor or coach who will tailor the session to the specific needs of cohort participants, as identified on the applications. Cohort sessions will be pre-scheduled monthly with individual coaching sessions scheduled between coach and participant.
