Austin Involved Board Internship Program

Board Internship Program

The Austin Involved Board Internship Program, produced in partnership with Mission Capital and the Austin Young Chamber, is designed to create nonprofit board members who are immediately prepared to serve our community. The purpose of the Board Internship Program is to connect local professionals with Austin area nonprofits in need of well prepared board members. Participants will leave the program ready to commit their time and leadership skills to a cause they are passionate about.

The internship program consists of two levels of learning: classroom instruction focused on the application of best-practices in a nonprofit board setting, and practical learning with current nonprofit staff and board members. At each session participants will hear from nonprofit representatives who give real world context to the material.

Applications are now closed for the 2017 session.
