Providers' Council and Suffolk University Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management Program Application

We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis until we reach capacity. As of August 1, we have space in both the online and in-person cohorts.

The Certificate in Nonprofit Human Service Management is hosted by Suffolk University. The program is offered in two cohorts: one will take place exclusively online throughout 2022-23, and the other will plan to meet in-person, contingent on University and CDC regulations. Please note that those who would like to take part in the in-person cohort must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before classes start, as per Suffolk University's regulations.

To be eligible for this program, applicants must have a strong supervisor recommendation and a bachelor's degree or at least six years of work experience. Your agency must also submit a one-time $50 payment made out to HSPCF, Inc. to the address listed on the last page of this application.

Please contact Mesa Merritt at mesa@providers.org or 508.598.9700 with any questions.
