MANM Site Visit to Neighborhood Music School

Nonprofit Management Students Visit Neighborhood Music School

MANM Site Visit to Neighborhood Music SchoolStudents from the MA in Nonprofit Management program (MANM) visited Neighborhood Music School in Boyle Heights. Students sat inside the parlor of the Victorian house and as music wafted through the air. Karen Louis, Executive Director of the Neighborhood Music School and an alumna of the MANM program, shared the story of this remarkable school.

“Karen, our host, was amazing at bringing together different aspects of the MANM curriculum in her comments to the students,” said David Norgard, MDiv, MA, DMin, Chair of the MA in Nonprofit Management program. “She offered insights that have served her well in her leadership of this venerable LA institution and which our students will be wise to apply to their own professional situations.”

Students visited the Neighborhood Music School as part of their course curriculum. Site visits to a wide range of nonprofit organizations in the LA metropolitan area give students crucial behind-the-scenes exposure to the way organizations are run. MANM students visit twelve different nonprofits during their program.
