Looking to take your volunteerism to the next level?
By serving on a nonprofit board, you can donate your time and professional expertise in service to the community. United Way of New York City's BoardServeNYC initiative can help you acquire the skills and knowledge you need to serve as an effective board member.
BoardServeNYC participants are selected through an application process. Once accepted, they attend a one-day training, where they learn about the New York City nonprofit sector, the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards, and how to evaluate potential board service opportunities. After completing the training, candidates are introduced to local nonprofits actively recruiting board members.
