Get On Board WY
Across the Equality State, public boards and commissions are the foundation of healthy and informed communities. School boards, planning commissions, museum boards, and more -- we all benefit when effective leaders serve on these boards.
Whatever issue is important to you, there's a board for that.
We want you to Get On Board!
Get On Board is a free leadership development program that will prepare you, as part of a select cohort of Wyoming residents, to serve on public boards, plan campaigns, and become impactful leaders in your community.
Two ways to Get On Board
Get On Board
Get On Board is a 10-week program to help you develop the skills, knowledge, connections, and experience to be an effective leader on issues that are important to you and your community.
The program begins with an in-person kickoff weekend of interactive workshops and practical application. Your cohort will then meet weekly in a hybrid format to practice and strengthen new skills. You will apply this knowledge by participating in an experiential community project in collaboration with Get On Board cohorts across Wyoming.
Approximate time commitment: 40-50 hours over ten weeks. Stipends available for time and travel.
Get on Board Essentials
Get On Board Essentials is a 2-day program designed for emerging civic leaders as well as those ready to take their organizing and campaign skills to the next level.
By the end of Get On Board Essentials, you will be able to tell your personal leadership story, understand the role of public boards, and identify your next action steps as a community leader.
Get On Board is taught by Mountain Movement Strategies’ experienced team of leadership educators, campaign managers, and community organizers. Cohort sizes are kept small to allow for meaningful mentorship and feedback at every step of the way. Competitive stipends are provided to Get On Board participants. All participants will be invited to a Statewide Gathering in a central location in 2024 to connect with and learn from peers and leaders across Wyoming.
