In an effort to increase the number of people of color on boards and commission, Boulder County Community Action Programs has developed the People Engaged in Raising Leaders, a training program that teaches individuals from Boulder County’s diverse communities about the inner-workings of boards and commissions. It is an 8-week program with 15 slots available. Participants learn about communication, budget and fundraising, the difference between boards and commissions, and much more. PERL is a training program designed to increase involvement among people of color on boards and commissions across the county.
This a great opportunity for any student to get their foot in the door with any county position, and it is also a great opportunity to network. RSVP information provided in the link below.
