Board Placement

LEADERSHIP Philadelphia serves as the link between motivated private sector talent and non-profit board needs. As part of the Core Program, LEADERSHIP recruits, informs, and trains area executives in civic affairs and board management skills and then places them on non-profit boards of directors. Through our board placement work, LEADERSHIP is able to help community leaders use their professional skills and personal passions to build the capacity of important organizations, thereby strengthening the community as a whole.

LEADERSHIP Collaborative

Through the LEADERSHIP Collaborative Program, LEADERSHIP works directly with non-profit organizations that are actively seeking new board members. In order for non-profit organizations to receive priority for placement and to get exposure to the classes, they pay an annual administrative fee.

Benefits of Collaborative membership include:

  • Access to prospective board members
  • Enhanced visibility in the corporate community
  • Participation in the annual agency fair (optional)
  • Publicity for upcoming fundraising events and initiatives through LEADERSHIP’s alumni e-newsletter

Apply to the 2017-2018 LEADERSHIP Collaborative
