Join a community of young leaders who want to make an impact in our community through serving on a nonprofit board. 

Back by popular demand, register today for OnBoard.  Traditionally offered as a 5- week course, we’re trying something new this summer by delivering OnBoard as a 1-day learning “boot camp”.  (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 non profit 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.
