Big Projects

Ensure success for new or existing operational structures and programs. Is your organizaiton accomplishing what it intends to and dreams of?

Would your organization benefit from a simple refresh with the support of highly skilled specialists to accomplish the following?

  • Design new programs
  • Refresh existing programs with best-practices
  • Grant strategizing
  • Board training retreats
  • Staff training retreats

These projects typically run $600-$10,000.

{Secret} Coaching

Shhhh… we’ll help you to get to where you want to be. Dr. Alfaro only partners with junior and mid-career professionals working in community-based organizations. This is not executive coaching. That is, there are many career, organizational, and sector-specific dynamics that nonprofit professionals figure out along the way, BUT {Secret} Coaching supports you in moving past the learning curve faster and more joyfully.

  • It’s nobody’s business if you’re wanting to advance through direct, practical coaching.
  • This option is for grinders only.
