Austin Involved Board Internship Program

Board Internship Program

The Austin Involved Board Internship Program, produced in partnership with Mission Capital, is designed to create nonprofit board members who are prepared to serve as community leaders. Board Internship students participate in two levels of learning: classroom instruction focused on the application of best-practices in a nonprofit board setting, and experiential learning with current board members at local nonprofits. The purpose of the Board Internship Program is to create the most well prepared board members to serve our community.
