CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., May 11 /CSRwire/ - The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship at the Carroll School of Management has released its 2012-2013 Course Calendar and opened registration.
For more than 25 years the Center for Corporate Citizenship has been the go-to place for management and professional development in corporate citizenship and community involvement, whether participants are new to corporate citizenship or experienced leaders. Courses range from one-day and 2-1/2-day programs at locations around the country to weeklong academies on the Boston College campus.
2-½ day open enrollment courses can lead to certification
The series of 2-½ day courses brings professionals together outside the office to learn in a collaborative setting where they can share ideas and best practices. These courses can be taken individually or as part of a five-part program to earn the Center’s Certificate in Corporate Community Involvement Management, which is designed to equip corporate community involvement practitioners with the core knowledge and skills they need to ensure that community involvement delivers meaningful value to the business and to society. Professionals pursuing the Certificate must complete four core requirements and one elective course:

Fast Track condenses Certificate program to five days
The Fast Track Certificate program consolidates all aspects of the courses into a five-day, on-site program, allowing a company to bring together staff at its own location to cover the entire spectrum of corporate citizenship or community involvement management challenges in a time- and cost-efficient manner.

Redesigning Employee Volunteer Programs for Value and Impact will be offered in Columbus, Ohio, May 23. Hosted by Huntington Bank, the one-day workshop is designed to help corporate citizenship professionals rethink possibilities and increase the value and strategic relevance of their companies’ employee volunteer programs.
