2019 Onboard: Train to Serve on a Nonprofit Board

We’re proud to announce the return of Onboard, back by popular demand! Join a community of young leaders who want to make an impact in our community through serving on a nonprofit board.

This summer we’re introducing a 1-day learning “boot camp” to take place on Friday, June 21 in downtown Tampa from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Deadline to apply is June 7, 2019. Class size is limited. (OnBoard will be offered again in late summer 2019 in the traditional 5-week format.)

This course will give you the foundation needed to not only find the best board fit to match your personal passions, but provide you with the knowledge and tools to be highly effective in your new board role.

What makes this course different?

In addition to receiving a certificate of completion from United Way Suncoast, you’ll receive an in-depth overview of our local nonprofit community AND be connected with trusted nonprofits who are actively seeking new volunteer leadership for their boards and committees.  You’ll also be connected with past OnBoard alumni to continue building community connections.

Course Topics Include

  • The Role of Nonprofits in the Community
  • Board Governance
  • Navigating Nonprofit Financials
  • Expectations for Board Members
  • and much more!
