Student Experience

"Board fellows was an incredible opportunity to learn about board governance, explore critical issues affecting the functioning of a nonprofit, and make a meaningful impact on an organization. Through my work serving on the board of the National Academy Foundation/NYC Academies, my partner and I took on a major strategic challenge facing the board, and we had the opportunity to present our recommendation to a group of top executives in financial services, management consulting, and other key businesses. We made invaluable contacts and developed meaningful mentorship relationships along the way. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to be invited to sit at the table with such an impressive group of leaders, and provide input which, believe it or not, was actually heard!"
