Envisioning a world with equal access and opportunities for ALL…

Networks for Training & Development, Inc.

Thank you for stopping by...

We hope you find what you are looking for. Networks for Training and Development, Inc. (Networks) is a non-profit organization who recently celebrated our 25th year providing top quality training and consultation, along with demonstrating best practices throughout all of our services and projects throughout PA, and beyond. ​

Networks for Training and Development, Inc. is 27 years old.

According to numerology and the meaning of the 27th  year, it represents

“organizational and creative skills, as well as the ability to understand people. One who is destined to lead others by inspiring them with lofty goals.”

How fitting...

Over the past several years, we have brought up the idea of changing our logo. As we’ve continued to evolve individually and collectively, we felt that our overall branding should reflect these changes. However, we ran into roadblocks including time constraints, lack of consensus and lack of clarity on what we were doing and why.

More recently, the notion of changing our logo resurfaced with renewed interest and energy. We dove in, clarified our intentions, and stumbled upon an amazing process (thanks LogoMyWay) and equally amazing artist, Tedd Afrikano. Within a few weeks after beginning this process, we had received hundreds of drafts, run a contest on our Facebook page, and actively engaged our staff along the way.

So folks, here it is. We are non-linear. Whole. Complex. Multi=faceted. Sometimes closing the gaps. Other times, opening gaps to explore possibilities.

We are Networks.

Our Mission

Networks offers a variety of opportunities for learning and reflection on current and innovative trends in topics related to diversity, inclusion, organizational development, employment, community building, management, and life planning.

Consultation​

Networks views consultation and technical assistance as a collaborative process which focuses on a specific individual situation, organizational issue, or event. These services are designed to build internal expertise through assisting an organization or an individual to effectively carry out a new initiative, strategy, skill, or belief within a specific context.​

We offer two primary types of services; Community & Organizational Support / Person Centered Support

Community & Organizational Support ​

At Networks we actively study, practice, and disseminate information to others on current trends from our ’business world’ colleagues as well as from the ‘not for profit world’, as part of our Community and Organizational Development services.

Person Centered Supports​

Networks is committed to assisting all people to live fully included lives in their communities. Based on the belief that the person themselves knows best (regardless of their life situations), we facilitate teams and individuals in overcoming potential barriers to living full, independent lives, while ensuring they have the support to speak up, dream, and make life choices while upholding the key principle, “Nothing about me without me”. ​
