American Humanics


Hi all. I am a junior at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Besides seeking a Bachelor of Arts in community development and a Minor is Business Administration, I am also enrolled in the American Humanics program. This program is designed to let me earn a professional degree in non-profit management. If you want more info, go to www.humanics.org

The reason I am writing is to see if any of you were or currently is involved w/ AH and if you've had any positive outcomes from it. I don't really want to work for non-profits like Red Cross, Boy Scouts, etc., but the emphasis of AH is on grant writing and management of the money. I actually plan to work for a local development corporation or an economic development group and I was told that AH would prove to be an asset.

Besides just wondering for myself, I have to do a presentation about AH and it would help if I had some real-life testimony to share. Please let me know what you think! Thanks in advance!

The training would be fantastic for a community development office. In one position I was having trouble spending grant money in a "timely manner"; after I hired a finance/grants person the problem was solved (and she became deputy director).
