SPIN Academy


SPIN AcademyĀ strengthens non-profit organizations working for social change by teaching them to communicate effectively for themselves. The SPIN Academy provides accessible and affordable strategic communications training, individual coaching, networking opportunities, and other concrete communications tools. Drawing on a dedicated network of nonprofit communications professionals, we build the communications skills of social change advocates and build the capacity of grassroots organizations to accomplish their missions.


“Without Community Initiatives, California would not see the impact of hundreds of beneficial projects. They are an important part of our nonprofit landscape.”
