Program Participation Goals

Joining a nonprofit board is a serious commitment. Board members play a critical leadership role in determining the quality of programs and long-term sustainability of organizations. They are responsible for ensuring the organization has strong leadership, sound finances, effective fundraising, and high impact. Serving as a board member in the education sector is a personally and professionally rewarding opportunity to influence better outcomes for all children served by our partner organizations in our community. 


The Latino Board Fellowship is a leadership development program, which culminates with matching each Fellow to the board of an education organization where their skill-sets contribute in tangible, mission-driven ways. 

Fellows commit to: 

  • attend all sessions (dates listed below)
  • be open to learning how to be an effective board member and using tools and resources related to best governance practice;
  • participate actively in the program, collaborating with fellows around issues of good governance, diverse boards, improving board effectiveness, and making positive contributions to boards; and
  • engage actively in the board matching and cultivation process.

The 2022 Latino Board Fellowship will be delivered as a hybrid program that incorporates both in-person and virtual sessions. Session dates: *Note that times are in Eastern Standard Time
