Working as a board member on behalf of a nonprofit builds up your leadership skills and experience, and supports the community that a nonprofit serves. The Leadership Connection provides you with the knowledge and tools you need to serve on a board, along with helping you find the board that is the right “fit” for you.
Our hands-on training covers 4 key areas of board service – an overview of nonprofit governance, a focus on fiscal and legal oversight responsibilities, practical knowledge of fundraising, and leadership presence – and connects you with other executives and nonprofit leaders during the training. Afterward, we facilitate a match between you and the nonprofits you're most interested in, until you find the right match that's right for you.
Jericho did a great job preparing me for board membership and worked closely with me after the training to ensure I was matched with a non-profit organization that was in need of my particular skills and experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and engaging, and the fact that I was able to be a productive board member from day one is a testament to the quality of the Jericho Road board training program. Many thanks to the entire Jericho Road team for helping me contribute to my community in a very meaningful and fulfilling way.
