If you are between the ages of 20 and 39 and you would like to become actively involved in the community, you may be interested in the new launch of the Young Leaders on Board (YLOB) program from the United Way Centraide North East Ontario/Nord-est de l’Ontario (UWCNEO).

Young Leaders on Board participants are matched to a local voluntary sector board as an intern and connected with a board mentor throughout the duration of the program.

Through a combination of training, presentations and networking, program participants can expect to graduate from the six-month program with: a knowledge of board practices and the role boards play in organizations, legal responsibilities of board members, how to work collaboratively for effective change and building capacity in the community.

The deadline for application to the program is Nov. 30.
