For Cherokee Preservation Grantees: in partnership with WNC Nonprofit Pathways, the Cherokee Preservation Foundation offers a program of interactive learning called Skill Builders. Skill Builders courses are led by experts in the field of organization management. Sessions last 3 hours, followed by a networking lunch, and are held in Cherokee.
