Get on Board

About This Project

The Get on Board programme is run by The Bishop’s Action Foundation in partnership with Taranaki Young Professionals (TYP) and The Wheelhouse as part of our regional strategy to enhance governance skills in the community sector.

The programme enables an annual cohort of new board members to gain experience within the Taranaki community sector.  Participating boards have praised the input and work ethic of the trainee board members and the fantastic contributions they have made to the boards they are on.

Training support via The Wheelhouse that includes Governance, Planning and Financial management workshops ensures that the trainees have a solid fundamental understanding of what is required of good board members.
