In Canada, the nonprofit and voluntary sector is the second largest in the world, employing 1.5 million full-time (FTE) workers, or roughly 9% of the economically active population. There is an increasing move towards professionalization in this area. The Certificate in NGO and Nonprofit Studies at KPU prepares students for voluntary and entry-level work at NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations). The program has been structured using the Curricular Guidelines for Undergraduate Study in Nonprofit Leadership, the Nonprofit Sector and Philanthropy, Nonprofit Academic Centers Academic Council (NACC), 2007. Students will be given the opportunity to explore comparative perspectives on civil society, voluntary action and philanthropy, as well as key aspects of financial management and accountability.
