Welcome to BoardServeNYC, a United Way of New York City initiative launched in response to "NYC Service – A Blueprint to Increase Civic Engagement," Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's plan to increase volunteerism and support nonprofits within New York City.
BoardServeNYC builds the capacity of nonprofits in New York City by connecting them to a pool of prospective board members.
The candidates represent a cross-section of New Yorkers of varied skills and backgrounds, all of whom are interested in joining boards.
Training the board member candidates in nonprofit governance and actively preparing nonprofits to recruit, engage, and utilize new board members are integral components of BoardServeNYC.
This brief video offers an insider's glimpse into the training provided to individuals and nonprofits that participate in United Way's BoardServeNYC initiative.
