BoardServeNYC trains individuals to become effective board members and connects them to local nonprofits interested in strengthening their boards. The initiative utilizes a variety of methods to facilitate matches between trained candidates and trained nonprofits, including bimonthly board fairs and a searchable website—boardservenyc.org—that provides recommended matches and the means to make direct contact.
In 2016, BoardServeNYC provided 156 volunteers with comprehensive board service training and 12 nonprofits with workshops designed to help them effectively recruit, engage and utilize new board members. This effort resulted in 23 trained volunteers being placed on nonprofit boards.
