About the Program

Action University is an online professional development tool for AFP members. In each lesson, Action University takes a best-selling business book and summarizes it into a 10-15 minute video. Each video is accompanied by a workbook, a PDF summary, and in most cases a 45 minute webinar with the author where participants get to ask specific questions.

The PDF summary will be available to the public. However, the videos, workbooks, and other materials will be exclusive member benefits, and will require you to login using your AFP username ID and password to access.

Authors who are in the 2011 curriculum include Seth Godin, Guy Kawasaki, Bill Taylor (founding editor, Fast Company) and more.

Thanks to this special partnership, AFP is able to bring this exclusive service to members free of charge as part of your membership. This is a fantastic opportunity to help your professional development by applying the best thinking the world has to offer.

Vote on which Nonprofit Books You Want to See in the Lesson Plan!

Once a month, Action University will feature an additional lesson focusing on a book written for the nonprofit sector. We will provide members the opportunity to vote on which titles you would like to see in the program. Have a book sitting on your shelf that you've been dying for your colleagues to read? Here's your chance to turn that book into an interactive learning experience for all!
