WE INVITE YOUR ORGANIZATION TO APPLY TO BE A NONPROFIT PARTNER FOR THE RIORDAN LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE
The Riordan Leadership Institute (RLI) is a 9-month board training and matching fellowship that empowers and prepares diverse professionals for lifelong civic leadership as nonprofit board members. Unlike other board training programs, RLI also helps local nonprofit organizations build their capacity and connect with prospective board members who are drawn from the professional ranks of major businesses, have a strong history of community involvement, and are ready to make a commitment to serve on the board of a nonprofit organization.
In addition to classroom training, RLI fellows are paired with a local Nonprofit Partner for a six-month field experience to gain a better understanding of the nonprofit’s mission and the community it serves, as well as the strategic and tactical issues facing nonprofit boards. During that time, the fellows attend board meetings and execute a project designed to leverage their expertise and skills and further the work of the Nonprofit Partner board and organization.
Objectives & Benefits:
- Connect with prospective board members who are drawn from the professional ranks of major businesses and other community leaders
- Leverage the expertise and skills of a RLI fellow through a project-based field experience who will increase capacity and further the work of your board and organization
- Access the training gained by the RLI fellow
- Raise the visibility of your organization within the local community
