Youth Leaders on Board
Inspiring Lives of Leadership and Purpose.
What is it?
The "Youth Leaders on Board" initiative offered through the Brantford campus of Wilfrid Laurier University is designed to match undergraduate students with non-profit boards in Brantford, Brant and surrounding communities looking to bring a youth perspective to their boards. Designed to enhance the leadership and governance knowledge, skills and experiences of students and give them a foundation for a lifelong interest in board development.
Students will participate in a one-day training workshop on the roles and responsibilities of board members, followed by a one-year placement as a student member on a Board of Directors.
When does it run?
The inaugural "Youth Leaders on Board" program will run in the 2011-2012 academic year.
Thank-you for your organization's interest in the Youth Leader on Board Program. After a successful recruitment period this Fall, we have now reached our capacity for filling youth positions for the 2011-2012 academic year. If you have any questions or would like to have your Board considered for the 2012-2013 academic year, please contact Dr. Rosemary A. McGowan electronically at email@example.com. Thank-you.
