This week, a small group of interested Bridge graduates and nonprofit partners gathered to do some speed dating – board matching style. Here’s how it works: Once you’ve taken The Bridge, if you’re interested in having Seattle Works help you find an organization where you can serve (and that fits your interests and skills), we will! We host events like Board Speed Dating where organizations that are looking for qualified new board members will come and spend an hour with you!
We had Northwest Girls Coalition, North Helpline, Many Lights, and Safe Futures there to chat about their organizations, current needs (and challenges), board commitments and what specific role the Bridge grads could play if they were interested in the organization.
We have another Board Speed Dating event coming up on Wed 1/11 for anyone who has taken The Bridge. If you’re interested in joining us, drop Page a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
