For Spring Grow Irish, Master of Nonprofit Administration (MNA) students may choose between two options:

  1. The first is a team-based intensive, weeklong nonprofit travel immersion featuring project-based learning with nonprofit organizations in a large metropolitan area. This affords you valuable networking opportunities with alumni and nonprofit leaders as you discern diverse career paths in the nonprofit sector.
  2. The second option will feature innovation and flexibility in furthering the nonprofit career readiness of MNA students looking to stay on campus.
Grow Irish week provided me an opportunity to gain real-world experience while learning about the challenges within the nonprofit sector. Through this experience, I developed new skills, applied what I have learned in the classroom, expand my network, and most importantly, contribute to meaningful projects.
