$5 Million to Train Future Workers

American Humanics has received a $5 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to fund a new competitive internship program, called the Next Generation Nonprofit Leaders Program.

American Humanics is an alliance of universities, nonprofits and community organizations working to educate, train and certify entry-level professionals to strengthen and lead nonprofits. It says that each year, more than 2,500 college students work toward its certification in nonprofit management.

The Kellogg grant is meant to help students selected for the program – known as NextGen Leaders – pursue meaningful internships without the strain of financial concerns. Each student will receive a $4,500 stipend during internships of at least 300 hours.

American Humanics plans to select 1,000 NextGen Leaders over five years, beginning this spring.
