Today, Concern Worldwide US, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, and the International Medical Corps – supported by USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance – announce the launch of an innovative e-learning course that offers leadership training to humanitarians and all those passionate about humanitarian action.

The NNPHL Online Course is open to all at no cost and marks the latest initiative by the partnership, known as The National NGO Program on Humanitarian Leadership (NNPHL).

NNPHL Online Course

Since 2016, the NNPHL consortium has developed and implemented a series of in-person workshops in different regions, training 154 professionals from national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community-based organizations from 48 countries. The e-learning course will greatly expand the program’s reach.

The partners recognize the complexity of the challenges facing humanitarian actors today and the need for creative leadership to meet the needs of affected populations. Yet, few humanitarian training programs offer formal leadership training. NNPHL was designed to address this gap and to provide some of the resources emerging humanitarian leaders will need to realize their objectives. The NNPHL Online Course is taught by seasoned professionals and addresses a variety of topics including Adaptive Leadership for Humanitarians, Theories of Leadership, Introduction to Gender and Humanitarian Action, and Challenges in Humanitarian Security.

All are welcome to register today at to get started on a path to improved leadership skills and knowledge.

Please spread the word within your networks and join us in making a positive impact in humanitarian practice and policy.
