"It's been a wonderful process for us. We were able to secure four board members [through Leaders On Board]. It's a wonderful program any organization would want to take advantage of."
Every day hundreds of people are looking for ways to apply their values, interests, and skills in ways that serve the greater good. Leaders On Board trains its participants in board governance and nonprofit organizational structure and prepares them as candidates for board membership.

"I was able to meet six organizations [that night] and learn about their needs and missions....The nonprofits were so passionate about their mission that I was drawn to all of them....Choosing my top choice was a challenge."
