Virginia faces a shortage of trained executives to run Virginia’s non-profit sector. So says Greg Werkheiser, the executive director of the Phoenix Project. The Phoenix Project is a non-profit organization created to build partnerships between “Virginia’s universities and distressed communities.”

Werkheiser joined Coy Barefoot on WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now to discuss the group.

“The non-profit sector has grown by 71 percent in just the past 15 years,” says Werkheiser. But, he says institutions need to do more to train replacements for the baby-boomers, who will soon begin to retire from public service.
