Interested in serving on a nonprofit Board?
Interested in serving on a nonprofit Board? United Way of New York City and the Brooklyn Community Foundation invite you to participate in the first-ever Brooklyn session of BoardServeNYC. Learn what it takes to really Do Good Right Here.
Brooklyn Community Foundation invites you to apply for a comprehensive 6-hour training session where you will learn how you can make a meaningful contribution to your community as a volunteer nonprofit board member.

- Financial oversight
- Board recruitment processes
- Strategic planning
This presentation is made possible by BoardServeNYC. Working in partnership with NYC Service, BoardServeNYC is a United Way of New York City initiative that recruits, screens and trains volunteers to serve as nonprofit board members and then refers them, based on their skills and interests, to New York City nonprofits.
Who Should Apply?
Board members/applicants should:
- Live or work in the five boroughs
- Bring a diversity of skills and professional experience
- Have a track record of volunteering
- Be able to commit at least 5 hours a month to board service
Admission is competitive, and seating is limited. If accepted to the program, a registration fee of $100 will apply; More Brooklyn sessions will be available at a later date.
