BoardConnect offers specialized training twice a year (Spring & Fall) in our Princeton office, for individuals interested in serving as a member of a nonprofit board of trustees. The four 2-hour development sessions are taught by subject experts. The learning focuses on governance, legal roles, fiduciary responsibilities, and advocacy and fundraising. The training is followed by our Meet & Greet Nonprofit Fair where you will be introduced to a diverse group of nonprofit partners seeking new trustees that are focused on missions such as, animal welfare, education, environmental initiatives, child and family support, justice and diversity and youth development.

Join the program that is setting participants up for success!  BoardConnect alumni have gone on to join boards that are creating social change such as, The Arts Council of Princeton, Campfire NJ, Dress for Success, Easel Animal Rescue, Homefront, Interfaith Caregivers, Kidsbridge, LALDEF, MillHill Child & Family Development, One Simple Wish, Princeton Blairstown, Princeton Nursery School, Sourland Conservancy, Trenton Community Music School and many more.
