VIRTUAL Nonprofit Board Service Certification March 2021 Cohort


We are excited to announce that our March 2021 cohort, sponsored by the Clare Rose Foundation, will focus on board service with organizations that work in Creative Youth Development. In addition to the traditional program curriculum, participants will learn about the unique opportunities and challenges faced by community organizations that support youth in reaching their full potential through deep arts learning and positive adult mentorships. These organizations work holistically to develop youth and the communities they live in, educate and activate youth voices, provide mental health and wellness services, and fight for racial and social justice through art, music, dance, theater, and much more.   

The University of San Diego‘s 2020 Annual Report: State of Nonprofits and Philanthropy in San Diego indicates that the effects of the COVID-19 crisis have been more profound in the Arts and Culture subsector than among other nonprofits. Creative Youth Development organizations are foundational to the advancement of a strong community and need innovative leadership, now more than ever. This cohort offers an exciting opportunity for current and aspiring board members with a personal interest in the arts to serve targeted nonprofits in need of specific areas of expertise.
