Project Overview

Help us recruit mission-driven leaders to our nonprofit! We are seeking a volunteer to help us craft a comprehensive board member recruitment plan. Project tasks will include:
-Meeting with our organization's leadership to establish which board roles are vacant
-Conducting interviews with board or staff members involved in board recruitment or prospecting to establish which tactics have and have not been successful in the past
-Development of the first draft of an inclusive board recruitment strategy that includes clear tactics for reaching candidates representative of the community that we're serving and who meet our current leadership needs
-Finalizing the recruitment strategy by incorporating feedback from relevant team members

Our organization is fairly new, and we need your expertise to succeed in our mission. You will be a part of an organization that helps women and girls in Africa to rise from poverty. We will provide economic tools to vulnerable families in Africa to be successful in their small businesses.

We will designate a team member to lead the project and work with the volunteer. We will also prepare members of our Board of Directors, so they are aware of the project. We'll provide you with relevant information about our stakeholders and a background briefing on our programs, mission, vision, and purpose. You will have access to our board governance materials and our current recruitment pipelines.
