Representation matters at all levels of the private school community but especially at the Trustee level. PSV’s Trustee Leadership Program (TLP) provides a comprehensive support and training apparatus for current and prospective Black private school Trustees. 


Through a mix of focused training, networking, mentorship and more PSV strives to measurably impact board representation and better support additional resourcing for families of color in private schools. This program is for:

1. Current Black Trustees: Whether a seasoned Board member or new to service, PSV recognizes that many Trustees hunger for like-minded connection and support services.  TLP will offer a range of support so that Trustees are knowledgeable about issues and trends, well-versed in Board governance, and can fully thrive in their Board service. An essential element of this part of the program is to foster connectivity between current Trustees so that they can be in community too. Initially, we will host quarterly zoom calls to check in, discuss best practices, and provide any necessary training.

2. Prospective Black Trustees: A central tenet of TLP is to prepare Black members of private school communities to serve on Boards.  To this end, TLP provides annual training to educate interested adults about boardship. Recognizing accessibility has been a barrier for many Black members of private school communities, TLP provides partial sponsorships to a select number of participants to attend the African-American Board Leadership Institute Board Leadership Program (AABLI), a 3-week virtual cohort program that provides more in-depth training and information on nonprofit board governance. Participants who successfully complete their program are eligible to receive certificates in board governance and assistance with placement on governing boards commissions by ABBLI.
