Board Development
Training Program 


Follow your passion, pick your nonprofit

We invite you to join Pick’s Board Development Training Program (BDTP), a reputable course to learn all about board governance and nonprofit service. Since 2009, BDTP has helped more than fifty graduates find a nonprofit board to serve on that is aligned with their passions. The program culminates with the annual Pick and Pledge Event, a networking event that introduces BDTP graduates to dozens of local nonprofits. BDTP graduates have made an impact at The Mission Inn Foundation, The Unforgettables Foundation, and The Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center, just to name a few.

Participants of the program graduate with the knowledge to serve a board immediately – and with confidence.


Scott Geiser, BDTP Graduate


“This dynamic program gave me the resources and motivation to excel in my professional organization as well as contribute more to the nonprofit community. I would highly recommend BDTP as a jumping off point for any young professional who would like to get more involved with their community.”
