Custom Programs

We develop custom programs in partnership with a funder, agency, membership organization, or large arts or cultural institution. We work with you and your community to design an organizational leadership curriculum that addresses the specific needs of your community or staff. Custom programs allow you to define the length and timing of your program, the topics, and the services to meet your specific goals.

Your program can take advantage of any of the NAS team seminars, our facilitation and consulting services, and custom events designed specifically for your cohort. This coordinated series of team seminars and services will help participants:

  • Build leadership expertise
  • Develop new initiatives for their work
  • Develop strong connections to each other
  • Increase the effectiveness of conversations within organizations and across the community

NAS has proven experience designing and leading custom programs for states, cities, and organizations. If you would like to sponsor or coordinate a custom program, please contact us so we can explore the best approach for your community.
