  • Mentoring
  • Team Motivation

Come share your knowledge and learn from others in the nonprofit realm, followed by restorative group activities in the afternoon!

The Afternoon

The 2023 Nonprofit Summit Retreat: Self-Care & Sustainability will feature local nonprofits and community organizations leading restorative activities in the afternoon. These activities are meant to help engage participants in activities that revitalize and rejuvenate their energy. Register for the event and select which activities would be most restorative for you.
