2021 AJLI AWARD FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

The Junior League of Wichita, Kansas

To promote quality board service, JLW initiated a series of board development and training opportunities. This program prepares League members, local nonprofits, and community members to serve as competent and impactful board members. The training ensures that participants will be able to contribute to developing and enhancing a board’s functionality, thereby making them more effective, and essentially, truly building a better community as they are deployed out into their local nonprofit ecosystem. To date, they have trained 289 individuals and provided consultation to 6 area nonprofits. In 2020, the number of community nonprofit board members taking advantage of this program has increased by almost 80 percent.
