What our students say

The classes provoked my thinking and challenged me to learn different ways to do my job well.

Todd Walker – Executive Director, Judeo-Christian Outreach Center

Attending even one class will put a new perspective on your work. The knowledge I gained from each class has helped me personally and professionally.

Madeline Dummerth – Education Assistant, Virginia Stage Company

I have worked in the non-profit sector for almost 15 years. ANE's classes are informative and the greatest benefit is having access to the instructors after the class is over.
