MTAP is designed to help organizations that serve urban communities build capacity and enhance their performance and effectiveness. The program will consist of three primary service components: the Convening component, the Technical Assistance component and the Executive Leadership Development component.
The Convening component will conduct symposiums, seminars and/or conferences that focus on topics such as best practices, nonprofit politics and funding and team building.
The Technical Assistance component will use students and faculty to provide management and technical assistance to participating organizations, in areas such as finance, marketing, strategic planning, human resource administration, program development, research and technology.
The Executive Leadership Development component will provide leadership training and development for board members, nonprofit executives and key employees within their organizations.
