Strong board leadership is the key difference between a successful organization and one that is struggling to survive.

Board Training:  Schedule an expert to meet with your board to help members keep up with trends, issues and best board practices. The Nonprofit Connection Center board training is designed to clarify board roles and responsibilities and address specific issues that may be challenging board effectiveness.

Board Orientation:  New and returning board members may benefit from a Board Orientation that provides a comprehensive overview of the organization's plans and programs, introduces board and staff members, clarifies policies and procedures and engages everyone in the important work of the organization.

Project Blueprint

United Way of Northern Utah’s Project Blueprint trains tomorrow's nonprofit board leadership, ensuring that our nonprofit sector reflects the rich diversity of our community. 

It's a reality that nonprofit boards lack diversity. Less than 23% of U.S. nonprofit board members are people of color. United Way Project Blueprint works to change that reality for our service area.  

What is United Way Project Blueprint?

This unique program prepares emerging and current leaders in our multicultural community for leadership roles on nonprofit and public sector boards and committees.

The group meets regularly for about two months of curriculum sessions, starting with a retreat and culminating in a graduation. 

Why should you apply? Participants gain:

  • Leadership skills that translate to for-profit and nonprofit settings
  • Connection to like-minded professionals
  • Deeper awareness of community challenges
  • Connections to nonprofit board or committee opportunities

Scheduled for September 2021.  Want more information?  Email
