Ventura County University To Host Leadership Training Center For People Involved With Non-Profits

A Ventura County based university announced it will launch a leadership center to help people involved with running non-profit organizations in the region.

California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks will host the new Center for Non-Profit Leadership. The center is intended to help fill a gap created by the closure of the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Center for for Nonprofit Leadership. The center provided training from non-profit officials and volunteers for more than two decades, but the financially troubled foundation shut it down last year.

The new CLU center will be headed by Dena Jensen, who ran the community foundation’s leadership program for a decade.

CLU officials say there’s a huge need for the training programs, noting there are more than 3300 non-profits in the county alone. It will officially open in September.

CLU is the parent of KCLU Radio.
