ATD University

Our Mission:

To serve our communities and help enhance employee engagement at non-profit organizations in Central Iowa by offering high quality leadership and personal development training at no cost to individuals who work for local non-profits.

How? Our members are the people who create and deliver high quality training in companies and other organizations throughout Central Iowa. It’s our job!

We know that training budgets are tight – especially for non-profits! We are willing to donate our time and existing content to help make more development opportunities available to those who work for non-profit agencies.

You serve the people of Central Iowa. Now let ATD Central Iowa serve you.

This Semester's Host

Thank you to our host organization for the fall 2017 semester:

Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS)

YESS provides a safety net of programs designed to help kids when they need it most, including emergency shelter, crisis nursery care, mental health counseling, and care coordination. As Iowa's largest provider of emergency services for youth, the agency connects more than 2,000 children per year with hope and healing.

What is ATDU?

Sponsored by the Association for Talent Development (ATD) in Central Iowa, ATD University (ATDU) offers free monthly training sessions each fall and spring for individuals who work in non-profit organizations.

Each semester, ATD representatives and a steering committee made up of non-profit leaders select relevant topics related to three tracks of learning:

  • Personal Development
  • Leadership Development
  • Wellness

Non-profit agencies provide the classroom space, and ATD members provide the training.

Class dates and times are sent to participating non-profit organizations so they can make the sessions available to their employees in whatever manner they deem appropriate.
Registration is limited by the available space, and sometimes by the activities associated with a class. Participants are accepted based on the order in which they register.
