A blueprint for increasing ethnic diversity in volunteer leadership.
Project Blueprint is a leadership development program with the goal of increasing the number of ethnic diverse volunteers providing leadership for the boards of Lehigh Valley non-profit agencies. It is designed to help these organizations develop boards that are more inclusive, responsive and reflective of the culturally diverse communities they serve. Project Blueprint develops knowledgeable and trained leadership volunteers who can most effectively help agencies meet the new and emerging needs of our community.
This six session program covers the following topics:
- The Nonprofit Board
- Board Member Expectations
- The Importance of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
- Understanding Nonprofit Finances and Legal Aspects
- The Board's Role in Philanthropic Fundraising
- Speed Networking—Matching Class Participants with Nonprofits

From a 2019 Participant:
I currently serve on the United Way Finance committee and plan to be more active with Women United. This class has been extremely beneficial and has already helped me become more engaged and comfortable asking questions during meetings.
I am hoping in the future to get involved with an organization helping women and I now know how to get started.
Thanks for taking the time to provide this opportunity.
