Black Philanthropic Alliance Accepting Applications for Peer Coaching Network

WASHINGTON, DC - Applications are now being accepted for the Black Philanthropic Alliance's (BPA) Peer Coaching Network (PCN).  Open to seasoned and next generation (less than five years’ experience) nonprofit executive directors, the PCN will begin in June and run for six sessions.

PCN allows a small group of nonprofit leaders the opportunity to participate in highly focused meetings to address real-life issues or goals while encouraging practical advice and useful questions from other members.   Participants will identify useful actions to take between meetings, foster learning from peers’ advice and question and reflect on individual actions, through both external or self-facilitation.   The BPA Peer Coaching Network is designed to:
  • Enhance and strengthen leadership skills
  • Provide a forum for problem solving
  • Provide a safe place for leaders of color to discuss challenges and issues
  • Offer mentoring and encouragement for the next generation of minority leaders
Participants will work with a trained peer coaching facilitator provided through the Center for Nonprofit Advancement.   BPA’s PCN employs the Authentic Circles peer-coaching model developed by Authenticity Consulting, Inc. 

To learn more and to request an application, contact  Applications are due no later than Friday, May 10, 2013. Deadline extended to Friday, May 17th!  To learn more about the Black Philanthropic Alliance, visit
