Nonprofit Boards Clearinghouse

Leadership Through Governance:

Training Volunteers for Nonprofit Board Membership

The Nonprofit Boards Clearinghouse trains course participants to be effective Board Members and introduces them to dynamic New York City nonprofit agencies through a structured placement process. Since 1991, over 1,000 women and men have successfully completed the New York Junior League’s (NYJL’s) training course designed to build leadership skills and increase knowledge about nonprofit board governance.

Governance by a knowledgeable and responsible Board of Directors is a critical success factor in achieving a nonprofit’s mission. NYJL works with over ninety nonprofits that are looking for qualified candidates for their Board of Directors who can commit their time, energy and resources to help fulfill their mission.
