If you know someone who’d benefit from learning about Social Networks and other forms of New Media in a Not-For-Profit context, I’ll be teaching a class at NYU SCPS this fall on the subject. At $400 for 4 sessions, it is an excellent value (IMHO) and a great way to get an overview and some practical advice on using blogs, social networks, and other forms of media to recruit and retain volunteers and for fundraising, outreach, and publicity. Please pass it on.
Using Social Networks and New Media Technologies in Your Nonprofit
X39.9211 / Continuing Education / $400
Donors, volunteers and staff are using technologies, from Facebook to Weblogs, to connect, communicate, learn and inform. What are these new social media tools, and how can your organization use them most effectively? How can you leverage social networks to build community, photo and video sharing to promote your cause, or blogging to keep your constituents informed? The course gives practical examples, and features guests including Tom Watson, author of the forthcoming Causewired and co-founder of Changing Our World.
