Leadership Volunteer Opportunities

Serve in a leadership capacity on a nonprofit board or committee.  Use your professional expertise to help strengthen the internal operations and efficiencies of a non-profit agency.

BoardWalk Academy

This new, nonprofit leadership series was developed to assist individuals who may not be typically asked to serve on a board or committee in developing leadership skills, building confidence, and making connections to have a voice in the services that are provided in our community.

Cost: FREE including dinner each evening as well as childcare and transportation on an as needed basis.

Classes begin on Thursday, May 5th and are held on Thursday nights from 5:30-8:30pm for six consecutive weeks until June 9th. BoardWalk classes are facilitated by local community leaders who share their knowledge and experiences with participants to help them learn more about what it really means to serve on a nonprofit board or committee in Dane County.

If you are interested in attending this engaging, informative program, please fill out an application today! Applications are due by April 28th, 2016.
