BoardWalk Academy

BoardWalk Academy is about to begin, REGISTER NOW.


BoardWalk Academy builds the knowledge, confidence, resources, and connections of individuals who are under-represented on nonprofit boards and committees. During six weekly sessions, participants learn about the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards, how they function, and how important their opinions are to our community. All while learning and growing their own leadership styles and skills.

Our most important goal is for participants to feel comfortable with the expectations of board members, and to begin serving as leaders on nonprofit boards or committees.


Topics Include: Introduction to the Nonprofit Sector, Business Acumen, Board Governance, Stewardship, Vision, and lastly, Graduation & Making Connections
