Australian Progress’ Capacity Building Hub supports small nonprofits and grassroots movements to survive the pandemic and thrive beyond it. This article provides a guide to the resources gathered in the CBH collection.
Australian Progress works to strengthen the capacity of non-profits and other community groups to create systemic change. This means strengthening leadership skills, increasing collaboration, and supporting innovation in advocacy. Australian Progress touches thousands of change-makers and hundreds of organisations each year.
Many of the resources in this collection come from the Progress Network, drawing on the skills and expertise of presenters and alumni from Progress training fellowships.
