TechSoup developed a nonprofit disaster preparedness course online in 2019, with funding from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy. The initial focus was on nonprofits in Hurricane Harvey-impacted regions of Texas. But the knowledge is helpful for any nonprofit, in any location.
On February 13, 2020 the curriculum team – which included me – held an in-person workshop in Houston at Ronin Art Center. These Instagram photos show our workshop in progress.
To take the cutting edge disaster preparation course online, follow this link to sign up. You can take the course at your own pace, and there are recorded and written aspects, including certificates of completion for each module to print and keep. If you have questions, reach out to me or any member of our curriculum team, Shuya Xu (who developed the curriculum for TechSoup), Gray Harriman (educational program coordinator for TechSoup), Dhruv Khattar or Joe Hillis.
