Reviews for Proinspire
The ProInspire program is a unique combination of theory and hands on activities that prepared me to not only learn new concepts, but to apply those concepts immediately to my work process. ProInspire is the most well thought out training program that I have ever experienced. I appreciate the leadership and the structure and would highly recommend ProInspire to others who manage people or processes.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I absolutely loved my experience participating in the Managing for Success Fellowship with ProInspire - so much that I have now referred several of my staff members and look forward to seeing continued impact! ProInspire enabled me to tap into my own strengths as a leader in the non-profit sector and also made me a more effective manager of my team. I have continued my relationship with ProInspire and continued to benefit from their network.
ProInspire is a one of a kind opportunity for business professionals who want to make a social impact. As a 2014 ProInspire fellow, I thoroughly enjoyed my fellowship experience and continued to stay with my partner organization. The ProInspire program, in particular the monthly professional development trainings, helped significantly with the transition. More importantly, they helped me realize my skill set, my strengths, where I can improve, and set concrete goals for my career and a path to get to them. It is truly a great program and I hope it continues to help professionals like me transition to the social impact sector.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I'm a currently a fellow with ProInspire, an organization that has identified social sector demand for private sector business experience and is cultivating supply. My experience with ProInspire has been everything that I had hoped for and more. The level of talent working within the organization and the participating fellows is infectious (intangibles everywhere).
I attended a 4 month management training program with ProInspire and was amazed with how much it helped me manage myself and my organization better!
I am a fellow with ProInspire and cannot speak highly enough of their leadership training capabilities, networking help, and professional development resources. ProInspire not only offers opportunity to individuals interested in serving in non-profit roles, but provides much needed research and dissemination of information to grow understanding of the changing nature of the sector and how organizations can better obtain and retain talent. ProInspire is served by outstanding leadership who have provided personal guidance to my and each individual fellows journey, while developing informative training and professional development opportunities.
I am 30 years old, and came to ProInspire wanting to pivot my career to the social sector. I knew ProInspire would be a good tool for transitioning successfully into the logistical world of nonprofit, but what I didn't expect was the level of support and encouragement I received during my transition. The team at ProInspire has given me the professional tools to succeed, as well as welcomed me into a supportive network of professionals unlike any other. I commend ProInspire in the vital work that it does, acting as a talent pipeline to the social sector, but also for its success in creating strong, lasting community.
I am a management fellow with ProInspire and I have to say that the experience has been exceptional. When I initially signed up, I was skeptical of yet another management training. On day one of the training, I was amazed by the level of detail and relevance of the training - it was well structured and excellently delivered. From having peer circles to delivering content that I can apply to my day to day management practice, I'm glad that I chose to join the ProInspire community.
ProInspire is a great community to grow as a leader and as a manager. The staff and the other fellows are just a perfect fit.
Been a donor for years because they run a great operation and are always innovating toward the mission.
