The Net Impact NYC Board Fellows program aims to match talented, energetic, and committed New York area professionals with local nonprofit organizations in an effort to increase capacity in the nonprofit sector while providing members with an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.

-Include the Board Fellow in all general board meetings and relevant committee meetings.
-Work with the Board Fellow to establish goals and projects that benefit the organization and interest the Board Fellow.
-Complete a post-project evaluation.
Board Fellows are expected to:
-Commit to contributing 5-10 hours per month to the nonprofit organization.
-Attend all general board meetings and meetings of all committees in which the Fellow participates.
-Carry out projects and tasks, and all interactions with their nonprofit, with integrity and professionalism.
-Come to the table with experience and success in leadership positions, and sincere interest in or passion for the cause of the organization.
-Submit a report at the end of their Fellowship, summarizing the impact of their participation for the host nonprofit, and discussing key lessons and takeaways from their Board Fellowship experience.
