Since 2015, WDI and its partners have provided NGO Leadership Workshops to non-profit leaders from across Central and Southeastern Europe. Together, we now offer two NGO Leadership Workshops annually making the world more civically engaged and peaceful.
Covering marketing, strategic planning, fundraising, and management, these workshops help NGOs run more effectively and sustainably. Workshops empower NGO leaders to strengthen their internal expertise, managerial and income-generating capacities, improve their ability to engage with both general public and government stakeholders, and to develop international networks. Workshops take place in Slovakia and Poland in the spring and fall.
Those interested in attending either workshop are required to submit applications. Selected applicants will attend tuition-free, lodging will be provided and transportation costs reimbursed.

The workshop will empowers selected civil society representatives to strengthen their leadership skills and managerial capacities to advance the impact of their organizations.

The workshop is designed for NGOs working with internally displaced people in Ukraine.
