Keep Educating Yourself; New Roster of Professionals to Boost Local Not-for-Profits

Professional development and training is vital to an organization’s well-being. It can improve employee performance, build morale and increase productivity. It can also be prohibitively expensive for many organizations, especially not-for-profits.

That’s where the Keep Educating Yourself (KEYs) program from United Way Perth-Huron (UWPH) comes in.

“UWPH is dedicated to offering local, affordable training and coaching to non-profit and other organizations across Perth and Huron Counties,” says UWPH Director of Community Information Susan Faber. “We encourage organizations in need of training and development to take advantage of this great resource.”

A listing of local experts, known as the KEYs roster, includes volunteers willing to give their time to help local organizations. The KEYs roster outlines the skills of each expert and the types of sessions or consultations they’re willing to take on. If an organization finds a volunteer on the roster with skills they need to build new knowledge, help them solve a problem or to strengthen existing skills, they can contact UWPH to coordinate.

Libro Credit Union sponsors the professional roster as well as the workshop series offered each spring. This year some of the workshop topics include: Leadership, Change Management, Data Driven Storytelling and Risk Management. In total, six workshops will be offered in both Perth and Huron County. Details to be announced in February.

UWPH is always looking for more dedicated professionals to become part of the KEYs roster. To volunteer your skills as a presenter, facilitator or mentor, email keys@perthhuron.unitedway.ca or call 519-271-2978. Please indicate your area of expertise and the kind of training you could deliver along with the number of hours you would be available.

UWPH is 100% local and supports 48 organizations and services that address #unignorable issues like poverty, isolation and youth mental health in communities across Perth and Huron Counties. To donate, please call 519-271-7730 / 1-877-818-8867, drop in to 32 Erie Street, Stratford, ON N5A 2M4 or visit perthhuron.unitedway.ca.
