EC’s Director of Communications, Elizabeth W. Hughes, EdD, recently completed the Nonprofit Certificate Leadership Program (NCLP) at the University of Scranton.  Participants in the 2018-19 cohort, representing a variety of organizations, benefited from a rigorous schedule of readings, lectures, panel and peer group discussions, featured guests, mentoring, and a capstone project all designed to develop their leadership skills, further organizational, and advance positive community outcomes.  EC’s President & CEO, Mike Dziak, also participated as a program coach.  EC’s tuition for the program was support in part by a scholarship by The Luzerne Foundation.  Find out more about the program here:  Congratulations to all the 2019 program graduates!
