Get On Board

United Way Get On Board presented by Kentucky American Water is an initiative to train, recruit, place and retain underrepresented people on nonprofit boards of directors in Central Kentucky. Get On Board is strengthening the community by increasing diversity on nonprofit governing boards for greater board effectiveness which will ultimately build a stronger community.

Participants complete a training program that teaches board governance and other necessary skills for effective leadership. Classes meet weekly for ten weeks. There is no cost for participants.
Get On Board seeks applicants who feel underrepresented on nonprofit boards of directors. Those seeking community involvement on a leadership level are urged to apply.
Nonprofit organizations in Central Kentucky are also encouraged to become involved and receive the well-trained graduates of this program. Participating organizations benefit from the new source of leaders who know and care about their community. If you are interested in finding out more about how a Get On Board graduate can become an asset on your board, or for information on how to receive a Get On Board graduate, please send an email to
