Net Impact Boston is pleased to announce the launch of its Winter placement for its Board Fellows program. Both Boston area professionals and non-profits are encouraged to apply!
Under the Board Fellows program, Boston-area professionals are placed into year-long fellowships as a non-voting member of a local non-profit’s Board of Directors
Fellows and Organizations are matched according to organization need, professional experience, and mission interest alignment.
Fellows provide organizations with professional expertise, while learning about critical strategic and governance issues facing area non-profits. Organizations benefit from a fresh, outside perspective and experience that is relevant to the non-profit’s existing needs.
In previous years, Fellows have assisted an education organization through a merger and developed a marketing plan for an organization dedicated to educating girls in developing countries.
If you’re an interested professional or organization, please consider submitting an application.
All Boston-area professionals who would like to join the board of a local non-profit are welcome to apply. The application is available here.
If you are with a local non-profit and would like to host a fellow on your Board, we invite you to apply here.
