Join a Board

There are many ways to share expertise and time as a volunteer.  Serving on a nonprofit board is one of them!

You can give back to the community in a powerful and personal way while simultaneously:

  • Expanding your professional networks
  • Enhancing your leadership skills
  • Meeting personal development goals
  • Learning about your community and its needs

Jericho Road's Leadership Connection program can help you be a great nonprofit board leader by training you in these key areas:

  • Governance
  • Fiscal and legal oversight
  • Strategic revenue generation
  • Leadership presence

After completing the training, Jericho Road helps match you with a local board that best aligns with your skills and interests.
