United Way invites you to attend the Young Leaders Program Board Recruitment Fair!

Join United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey at the board recruitment fair to meet the 2016 graduates of the Young Leaders Program (YLP), who are eager to learn about nonprofits in our region and explore the opportunities available for board service!

Participants in YLP, a board orientation program, attend six sessions that focus on fundraising, board roles and responsibilities, board and administrator relationships, legal and ethical issues, and organizational life cycles. After graduation, United Way provides a forum to introduce nonprofit organizations with open board positions to qualified candidates.
