The Meals On Wheels
Empowering Leaders to Stand Against Senior Hunger
The Meals On Wheels Association of America established the Meals On Wheels Leadership Academy to be the venue and the vehicle through which customized education and professional development programs are offered to individuals working in Senior Nutrition Programs.
The Academy provides high-quality education and training, tailored to the specific needs of this unique community. Senior Nutrition Program staff and volunteers can participate in a wide range of learning opportunities designed to equip them with the enhanced knowledge and skills they need to run effective programs.

Is the Academy Right for Me?
Courses offered by the Meals On Wheels Leadership Academy are designed for individuals who work in Senior Nutrition Programs. While we cover many topics that may be of general interest to nonprofit leaders, most examples, exercises, case studies and content are tailored to the needs of professionals in the senior nutrition sector.
Those who benefit most from Academy programs are:
Individuals looking to build their knowledge in the senior nutrition field.
Experienced Senior Nutrition Program leaders and managers looking to refresh and expand their current skill set.
Young professionals at Senior Nutrition Programs looking to develop their talents and leadership potential.
Members of the Meals On Wheels Association of America receive discounts on registration fees and are eligible to apply for education grants and scholarships to attend Academy programs (when available).
All others interested in senior nutrition or nonprofit program operations are welcome to attend classes and webinars and may enroll in the Leadership Certificate program.
I had a great experience, and am very excited to share the dozens of insights and action items with the team back home! Thank you for helping us to take our operation to a new level of excellence. It is sincerely appreciated!
