The Nebraska Table works to strengthen Nebraska’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit community and develop the next generation of leaders by providing leadership development training, resources to our member organizations, and occasionally, to other nonprofit organizations in Nebraska as well. We do this through Our Programs:
Our paid internship program is open to students, recent graduates or any person seeking experience in field organizing and/or communications work as it relates to civic engagement, advocacy, public policy and nonprofit leadership. Since our launch in 2016, many of our interns have either joined NCET as permanent staff, or have been hired by our member organizations.
In 2018 we launched our inaugural Organizer School, a program through which we hire, train, and place community organizers with our member organizers, providing their salary and benefits for one year. The purpose of the program is for nonprofits to realize the benefit of having a full-time organizer on staff, and to gain measurable data to support their programs and secure future funding, and to create a pipeline of nonprofit leadership for talented and engaged advocates in our communities.
Training & Professional Development
NCET provides individualized training to our members based on their Communications, Field Organizing, and Data needs. We also provide larger capacity building training such as management, grassroots fundraising, and equity & inclusion via nationally renowned trainers at no cost to our members.
