YOUR LINK TO FORT BEND COUNTY

The Community Resources Division will focus on forming effective partnerships and collaborations to offer a positive impact within the community of Fort Bend. As a catalyst for community excellence, the division will research, identify and implement programming to inform and educate the community-at-large on issues impacting the quality of life for the community.

 

We are accepting applications for the Excellence for Nonprofit Leadership (ENL) Class of 2021. ENL is an intense eight-session course designed to enhance the knowledge and skill sets of senior staff, board members and engaged community members leading nonprofit organizations. Presented by Fort Bend Forward of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and funded by The George Foundation, the ENL program provides the necessary knowledge to boost your organizations' capacity and performance while building a peer network of professionals working toward a common goal of serving Fort Bend County. Click here to review the application and schedule. Sessions in 2020 will be held via Zoom 9 am - 11 am and 12 pm - 2 pm.  Sessions in 2021 will be held in-person should local regulations permit.  Participants may only miss one session or four hours to complete the program.
