Washington, DC – June 30, 2023  – The Center for Nonprofit Advancement is pleased to announce the recipients of the Board Leadership Award. Out Teach has been honored as the Winner of this esteemed award, while NVRDC has been recognized as the Honorable Mention.

Out Teach is a national education non-profit built to inspire and prepare today’s elementary students to become the next generation of fearless innovators. Designed by teachers, for teachers, the organization delivers personalized hands-on training, collaborative partnerships, and easily accessible resources that equip thousands of teachers in schools across the US to transform the outdoors into active learning labs. They are creating a world where every student–regardless of learning ability, race, zip code, gender, or access to resources– can step into the wonder of science.

NVRDC, established in 2012, is an organization dedicated to providing essential support and services to individuals affected by crimes in Washington, DC. Their mission is to empower victims through advocacy, case management and legal assistance.

The Board Leadership Award, initiated in 2011, aims to acknowledge exceptional board leadership within the Greater Washington area. It celebrates boards that go above and beyond recommended standards, bringing new levels of leadership that result in positive changes and notable successes.

The selection process for this award is thorough, including nominations, interviews and site visits, ensuring the recognition of exemplary nonprofit board leadership.

“We extend our congratulations to Out Teach for their exceptional achievement in winning the Board Leadership Award and for their impactful work in empowering educators and students,” said Sean Sweeney, Director of Education and Special Programs at the Center. “We also commend NVRDC for their significant contributions and recognize them as the Honorable Mention this year, providing crucial support to individuals affected by crimes within our Community.”

The Center for Nonprofit Advancement will share the 4th Annual Board Best Practices Video Shorts in the near future.
