Preparing Next Generation Nonprofit Leaders
                                Since 1948
                                                                2008 Annual Report
American Humanics
                With bipartisan support, President Barack Obama signed the Serve America
                  Act into law on April 21, 2009. As nonprofit organizations face concurrent
                  increases in demand for services and competition for funding, public service is
                  an essential component of economic recovery. American Humanics has been
                  preparing professionals for public service since 1948, and remains the only
                  national nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, preparing, and
                  certifying the next generation of nonprofit leaders. American Humanics
                  continued to advance its network of academic and nonprofit partners in 2008,
                  securing scholarship funds and drawing attention to the need for strong
                  academic programs in nonprofit leadership and management.

  (Continued) A Call to Serve
  A Call to Serve is held annually in conjunction with the AH Management/ Leadership Institute. This one-day,
  interactive workshop on nonprofit careers is designed for career services professionals, faculty advisors, and others who
  provide career counseling. The 2008 A Call to Serve workshop featured local and national experts who provided an
  overview of the nonprofit sector, the range of career opportunities in it, and concrete strategies to help connect students
  to great first nonprofit jobs. There was a significant jump in participation in the workshop at AHMI
  2009, and AH looks forward to an even higher attendance at AHMI 2010 in Phoenix.

                                                                Nonprofit Internships
  Next Generation Nonprofit Leaders Program (NextGen)
  Underwritten by a generous grant from The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, NextGen is designed to help a
  racially and ethnically diverse group of students with demonstrated leadership potential complete their
  AH certification requirements, specifically the minimum 300-hour nonprofit internship. NextGen
  Leaders earn a scholarship of $4,500 from AH during their internship, along with access to and support
  from a network of nonprofit leaders who serve as Career Coaches. In the 2008 Fiscal Year, NextGen
  Leaders completed 54,600 hours of internship service. To date, over 400 nonprofit organizations have
  hosted NextGen interns, and of the 464 NextGen Leaders recognized thus far, over 43 percent are              NextGen Leader Roni
  students of color.                                                                                          Flakes shares her story
                                                                                                                  at AHMI 2009
  AmeriCorps*ProCorps is an AmeriCorps initiative administered by American Humanics that places AH students and
  alumni in paid AmeriCorps positions as volunteer coordinators and/or at-risk youth workers. AH ProCorps members can
  earn an AmeriCorps Education Award of up to $4,725, and organizations that serve as Host Sites for AH ProCorps
  members can benefit from the opportunity to employ AH students and alumni with the passion, skills and knowledge to
  work in the nonprofit sector. 952 AH students and graduates have served as AmeriCorps members through the ProCorps
  program, totaling over 553,000 hours of service to their communities.

                   Stationed at one of the five AmeriCorps*NCCC campuses in Colorado, California, Maryland,
                   Mississippi, and Iowa, *NCCC members spend much of their ten-month term of service working with
                   nonprofit organizations across the country. Because their experience is closely linked to the AH
                   internship and certification competencies, *NCCC alumni have already met most of the requirements for
                   American Humanics certification in nonprofit management and leadership. The AH certification
                   program is available to about 1,000 *NCCC alumni each year. In 2008, 52 *NCCC alumni were
                   registered with AH; that number has more than doubled already in 2009. AH is developing additional
                   partnerships to ensure that all AmeriCorps members have opportunity to earn AH certification.

The Nonprofit Career Guide
  In the spring of 2008, American Humanics released its newest resource, The Nonprofit Career Guide: How to land a job
  that makes a difference. Earning a silver medal in the business/career category of the 2009 Independent Publisher Book
  Awards, the Career Guide has received favorable reviews in a variety of circles within the nonprofit sector, including
  peer reviews in the journal of the National Association of Academic Advisors. The Nonprofit Career Guide remains
  among publisher Fieldstone Alliance’s top three sellers, a testament to the book’s popularity and longevity.

  Today the American Humanics program is offered on 65 colleges and universities nationwide. AH also partners with 70
  national nonprofit organizations that help educate and hire American Humanics graduates to work in their local agencies.
  There were 3,392 college students enrolled in American Humanics programs during the 2007-2008 academic year. Over
  35% of these students are self-identified as minorities. ■
