Young people want to serve! Meg Garlinghouse, Head of Social Impact at LinkedIn (@megarling) says, "There is a desire for young professionals to get connected! To date, more than 3.5mm LinkedIn members have signaled on their profile that they want to serve on a nonprofit board or use their skills to volunteer. We expect to see that number rise dramatically in the new year as more people are making social impact part of their professional identity and looking for ways to find purpose at work.”
If you are looking for new Board members, bring some fresh young perspetive and seek out college grads and young professionals who are looking to serve.
