United Way’s Latino Leadership Development Program was established to identify, train, and promote the placement of Latinos on boards, committees, community projects, and policy–making positions in order to ensure the Greater Rochester community and organizations are tapping the full potential of the Latino community. Nonprofit board members are often passionate about the objectives of the organization, but it takes more than passion to govern a nonprofit organization. Board members must understand their role within the organization, fundraising tools and management techniques. As professionals in your field, this leadership training will help you become acclimated to your role as a volunteer, community leader, a board member and enhance your problem solving skills.
The training is seven days in length and the curriculum topics include, but are not limited to:
- Board Member Responsibilities
- Group Dynamics
You must attend all program dates, so mark your calendar now.
