United Way Project Blueprint trains tomorrow's nonprofit board leadership, ensuring that Greater Houston's nonprofit sector reflects the rich diversity of our community.

Project Blueprint

A blueprint for diversity in board leadership

It's a reality that nonprofit boards lack diversity. Less than 23% of U.S. nonprofit board members are people of color. United Way Project Blueprint works to change that reality for Greater Houston.

What is United Way Project Blueprint?

This unique program prepares emerging and current leaders in our multicultural community for leadership roles on nonprofit and public sector boards and committees.

The group meets regularly for about two months of curriculum sessions, starting with a retreat and culminating in a graduation.

  • Leadership skills that translate to for-profit and nonprofit settings
  • Connection to like-minded professionals
  • Deeper awareness of community challenges
  • Connections to nonprofit board or committee opportunities
  • Alumni network of more than 900 graduates
