Becoming a Board Member

You can build the foundation for a better city.

Non-profits make a significant impact on Toronto and its residents. They support the community and create innovative ways to alleviate the city's most pressing social issues. Board members govern and lead non-profits through the strategic opportunities and challenges that arise.

Non-profits need board members with a variety of skills to achieve their organization’s goals. Whatever your professional background, serving as a board member can develop your soft skills and help you learn new ones.


The workshop costs $15 to attend and pre-registration is required. Simply click on one of the upcoming dates below to register.
