SUMMARY

Does your organization attract the next generation of dynamic nonprofit leaders? In episode #152 of Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership, we talk with Nick Azulay, a Fulbright Scholar, who struggled to convert his education and desire for a meaningful career with the practical skills needed to land a job in the nonprofit sector.  Nick divulges specific tools he used to navigate his path into the nonprofit sector and ultimately a leadership position.  By strengthening your pipeline of quality talent with a well-developed internship program, you will also attract and develop young professionals ready to seamlessly transition into any role.  Nick shares his experiences as one such intern, his transition to a full-time position and now, as a senior leader himself, how best to scale and utilize an intern program to onboard, train, evaluate and retain today's emerging leaders.
