Custom Work with Nonprofits and Social Impact Organizations

We partner with nonprofits and social impact organizations to design and deliver custom programs tailored to specific organizational needs, learning goals, and budgets.

We greatly benefited from the custom leadership program that ProInspire designed for our organization. Since the training, our managers seem more attuned to the emotional climate within themselves and the organization. I’ve noticed increased productivity in our meetings and an enhanced ability to hold difficult conversations as a result.”

Jo Smith, President & COO, PeerForward


We work with nonprofits and social impact organizations to design and deliver programs to support organizational needs for their team or staff. We can tailor workshop modules from our existing, proven curriculum or create custom sessions for specific needs.

We design our programs with the understanding that learning happens through experiences that expand knowledge, shift thinking, and provide an opportunity to practice. Programs can include half-day, full-day, or multi-day workshops or retreats, webinars, assessments, and/or coaching. In addition to designing and facilitating the program, ProInspire can manage the logistics, communications, and evaluation processes.

What Does a Custom Program Look Like?

Custom Programs Process

While we design our custom programs with each partner’s organizational needs and learning goals in mind, here are some examples of the types of custom programs we offer.

Training for Managers

We offer the ProInspire Leadership Institute for managers in the organization to build competencies around leading self and others, confidence to apply their learnings, and connections with colleagues in the program. We can offer this program as two days back-to-back or at a mutually agreeable interval.

Spotlight Example

ProInspire has provided the ProInspire Leadership Institute every two years to managers at PeerForward (previously College Summit). This program includes emotional intelligence, implicit bias, trust, delegation, coaching, and feedback.

Workshops and Webinars

We partner with organizations to design and deliver standalone workshops for staff. We can deliver these learning opportunities in-person or in a virtual setting.

Spotlight Example

ProInspire facilitated workshops on Managing Up for all staff at Share Our Strength and led webinars for Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy on Managing Up and Developing Your Career Narrative.

Professional Development Programs

We work with organizations to create a professional development series for their team. We can tailor existing modules from our proven curriculum and faculty expertise and/or design new modules to specific organizational needs.

Spotlight Example

ProInspire facilitated a series of workshops for Communities in Schools (including emotional intelligence, MBTI, and change management).


We provide planning and facilitation for staff retreats and leadership team meetings, including interviews, surveys, and assessments when requested.

Spotlight Example

ProInspire facilitated an all-staff retreat for Exponent Philanthropy and a leadership team retreat for America’s Promise Alliance. 


We support organizations looking to provide coaching opportunities to staff. We facilitate an Introduction to Coaching session, then match individuals with our proven coaches who work directly with social impact leaders.

Spotlight Example

ProInspire worked with the Center for Nonprofit Advancement to prepare and match participants in the Executive Preparation Institute with coaches.
