Lock Haven University is a certified partner with the Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania (WEDnetPA). The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania created an opportunity for employers to train new and existing employees through the WEDnetPA program. Advanced Technology training and Essential Skills training are available to qualified in-state businesses and out-of-state companies relocating to Pennsylvania - with funding accessed through WEDnetPA and made available by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). Through the program, companies can benefit from a wide range of training that will put their employees on the path to higher performance.

The Nonprofit Resource Network (NRN) enhances the effectiveness, efficiency and financial stability of community benefit organizations.
The NRN offers multiple resources in various formats designed to meet the individualized needs of your nonprofit (e.g., community benefit organization). We do some of this work in-house; we do a lot more by subcontracting with our Preferred Consultant Network - a team of experts who have gone through our vetting process to ensure service quality. These consultants have joined the NRN believing that, together, we offer a unique blend of services that is different than what each person offers on their own.
And we start with where you are at, using a variety of assessment techniques, rather than simply handing you a "one-size-fits-all" work plan. For some organizations, this assessment is simply a conversation. For others, we use our relatively new Sustainability Assessment Tool to guide our conversation. The end goal is connect you with the resources that best meet your organization’s needs.
- If your organization needs strategic planning services, we bring those services to you in a format that best meets your needs.
- If you need seminar-style in-house training, we offer a whole variety of topics including our very own Project Management Nonprofit Curriculum, and also fundraising, supervision, social media, leadership training and a whole lot more.
- If you want to send your staff to open-enrollment or group training, we offer that in variety of venues and often in partnership with other organizations.
- If you need someone to facilitate in a “sticky wicket” situation, we can do that (e.g., possible merger/collaboration relationships, conflict-laden decisions, etc.
- If you need someone to conduct focus groups for community needs assessments, market research or more, we can do that.
