Field Partner Program
Design & Fund Projects Through our Field Partner Program
Field Partners work with local communities to develop solutions to community challenges with the ongoing support of CSDi's training, guidance and consultancy. Through our proven training and consulting process, Field Partners develop real projects, in real time that are fundable, sustainable, and impact driven.
CSDi program facilitators, who have gained their development expertise in face-to-face consulting with nonprofits and NGOs in the field, consult with partner staff on their projects, provide technical support, and help them design, launch and manage their projects. Upon completion of project design, Field Partners can utilize CSDi's donation pages for soliciting donations for project funding.
CSDi has developed a Field Partner Program that will allow your organization to enjoy:
341. Designing and Funding Community Based Adaptation Projects.
- half-price training and consultancy group rates
- new donors: promotion of your projects on our donation web pages for US donors
- enhanced access to information on evidence based program tools and techniques
- long-term organizational support and guidance as a CSDi partner
Come study with us January 7.
In this training we will lead you through the development of a real project, in real time, in a real village, and leave you with the practical field tools to sustain it.
101. International Development: Designing & Funding International Development Projects.
- Conduct a participatory needs assessment with a community in your own country guided by CSDi staff.
- Use the needs assessment to begin the development of a complete, fundable, launchable project.
- Launch your project with the continued guidance of your CSDi workshop leader.
Are you working in international development in areas such as food security, health and hygiene, watershed management, agriculture, or income generation? Then this training program is for you.
This training program will present an ‘online field experience,’ and lead participants in the process of developing sustainable, self sufficient communities. This training program will lead you through the development of a real project, in real time, in a real village.
201. Northern Nonprofit: Designing & Funding Nonprofit Projects in Developed Nations.
If you work with a nonprofit in a northern country managing programs such as food banks, animal rescue, teen drop-in centers, homeless shelters, day care centers, OL 201 for Northern Nonprofits will help you develop a sustainable, impact oriented, local project.
The course will lead you through the development of a real project, in real time, and leave you with the practical tools to sustain it. For example, student projects have included efforts to help communities in Europe and North America with community development, youth employment, income generation, empowering immigrant women, the Inuit and climate change, and environmental restoration.
