Get Involved. Give back. Lead.
Graduates of Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. programs have the opportunity to continue their civic leadership through this "high-touch" board matching program. Board Matching Programs include the Board Matching Book and Leadership OnBoard.
BOARD MATCHING BOOK
With our Board Matching Book we provide an opportunity for area nonprofits to be included in a book that is distributed to our network of recent LP Program grads who may be looking to continue their civic leadership through service on a nonprofit board. The LPInc. team will make the connection between our alums and nonprofits that are looking to fill open seats on their board.
Alums of our LDI and CLCV programs gain first-hand experience with nonprofit boards, their governance and development processes through Leadership OnBoard (LOB). The program not only provides the experience and training necessary to be an effective board member, but also presents the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making process of regional public, private and nonprofit institutions. Through LOB, participants initiate a life of community service and civic leadership which is vital to the strength of our region's future. LOB participants serve in a non-fiduciary capacity.
Community-based organizations are invited to participate as hosts. For organizations, an LOB participant adds the fresh perspective and energy of a young community leader. The LOB participant can assist a board in developing relationships with a younger constituency, provide additional skills and expertise and cultivate other young board members.
Matches between host agencies and LDI/CLCV graduates are conducted, generally, once a year over the summer months; matches are based on several factors including board schedule, interests and skills compatibility. For their year-long board term, the participant pays no fees, has minimum fundraising expectations and has no voting privileges. Since its beginning in 1998, Leadership OnBoard has placed over 400 participants on the boards of more than 150 nonprofit organizations across the region.
