During my first week in the position, I went through the calendar of events on our website and chose which ones I would like to participate in.

The event that most significantly caught my eye was one described as “Speed-Dating for Nonprofits.” I have had a heart for volunteering since I was a kid.

As a recent transplant from Minnesota, I was looking for a way to get involved in the local community.

I spent 6 years in Minneapolis mentoring some pretty amazing kids, and I (perhaps somewhat selfishly) wanted to find a similar opportunity here in the Triangle.

Lisa Jemison, Director of Programming at The Foundation (who put countless hours of hard work into preparing this event), notes that the organization has always had a “desire to foster a culture of giving.” As a whole, The Foundation is committed to working toward the greater good and encouraging the community to do so as well.

What specifically interested Jemison in promoting this event is the fact that it provides an incentive for young professionals to get involved in community service.Because board membership stands out on a resume, individuals are able to make a difference while also advancing their careers.When I found out that the goal of the event wasn’t simply to find volunteers, but to find board members, I hesitated.Honestly, when I pictured the boards of these types of organizations, I envisioned seasoned business people near or past retirement.I wasn’t sure whether I would be a good fit, whether what I had to offer would be taken seriously.I have been reassured by Trudy Smith, Executive Director of the Executive Service Corps of the Triangle (ESC), who notes that she is committed to “raising consciousness about the value of younger generations” as board members for nonprofit organizations.
