Nonprofit Leadership Student Association (NLSA)The Nonprofit Leadership Student Association provides social and cultural opportunities for its members, as well as preparing future leaders in the field of nonprofit leadership. The NLSA focuses on community service and volunteerism in the Grand Forks community. In addition to leadership, members are given the opportunity to develop skills in working as a team.
The students in the program have the opportunity to participate in hands on learning experiences with local nonprofit organizations and programs such as the Kids Plus Program (formerly Back Pack Food Program) and conduct annual fundraising events such as the Used Formal Wear Sale.
Participation in the NLSA is mandatory to earn the Nonprofit Leadership Certificate or Minor and serves as a co-curricular learning experience.
