Another round of the Bridge July 13, 2012

Last night here at Seattle Works, we concluded the third and final session of another round of the Bridge.  If you didn’t know, the Bridge is Seattle Works’ dynamic training program designed to give you the basics in nonprofit and government board service.

Each round of the training is broken up into three sessions.  The sessions are three hours long each and held every other week.  Through the training, you’ll learn about roles and responsibilities of nonprofit and public board members and how to get involved.  The coursework focuses on:

  • nonprofit and public governance structures
  • financial and legal responsibilities
  • fundraising and resource development
  • personal reflection
Last night’s session, consisted of an informative Q & A Panel with several board directors from various nonprofits and a fun as well as insightful group simulation of board service.  All the instructors are passionate board members with many years of active board service under their belts.  As a summer intern at Seattle Works who’s only been to two out of the three sessions, I can already say that the Bridge has been very informative and certainly has piqued  my interest in board service.

If you’re considering becoming a board member or are just interested and don’t know where to start, check out the Bridge board training.  To learn more and sign up or to find out how to become a Bridge Partner, visit the Bridge page on our website.
