NGOs are invaluable to development, the work of strengthening democracy and building social capacities worldwide.

But NGOs with a mandate to work with the UN and its family of organizations have the additional need to develop the know-how and to build effective networks of relationships. It is to this end, the NGO Academy provides some of the training needed to speed the process of becoming more effective partners with the UN, other NGOs and the international community.

Having learned through our own experience since the late 1990′s that the capacity of each NGO’s team of staff, interns and volunteers directly impacts the NGO’s ability to fulfill it’s mission, the NGO Academy has taken up the mission of providing training needed by NGOs working in consultative status with the UN—and those interested in preparing to do so in the future.

We help provide you with the basic information, perspectives and steps you need to know to have a clear strategy tailored for the UN and intergovernmental environments. In short, we help you go from hope to clarity, from intent to action, from word to deed.

Our core online training program is called the Advocacy Algorithm and it covers all the basics you need. But for now, do take a look at the free express course.

Even those who have spent many years at the UN have commented that the Advocacy Algorithm is comprehensive—beyond their expectation, and that they “learned a lot.” And it is priced for NGOs!
