Membership | Join with other Career Development Nonprofits | ACDN
Whether you're operating a career development nonprofit or starting one, join a growing network that offers resources, training, and a supportive community.
The benefits of joining the Alliance
Connect with a community of people running career development organizations. Or start a program in your community.
You’re not alone. There are like-minded people all across the country running an agency (or starting one!) just like you, with just as much passion and fervor for making a difference. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to brag and steal best practices, share ideas with peers, and get started off on the right foot.
Receive ongoing training to improve and strengthen your program.
There’s always more to learn. You’ll have access to Virtual U for webinars from experts in the areas of fund development, board development, volunteer management, event planning, accounting, social media and other best practices. The member community has a growing list of resources you’ll be able to access anytime. You’ll be equipped with everything you need to maintain and grow your career development nonprofit.
Connections to large scale clothing vendors.
We coordinate product and clothing donations with manufacturers to help you get the accessories and clothing you need to serve your clientele. We coordinate large-scale group purchases of much needed plus size clothing. Together, our buying power works!
An annual conference with people who understand you.
A member favorite — the Annual Conference packs a year’s worth of learning into a few days and creates connections between attendees that lasts long after the conference is over.
ACDN community - a growing list of resources accessible anytime.
