Job Description

Team Information

The Centre for Non-Profit Leadership (CNPL) transforms the non-profit sector through effective, committed and passionate leaders. We nurture leadership capability through our integrated solutions of sourcing, developing, and aligning – serving non-profit leaders in Singapore with our signature programs of BoardMatch, COMPass, and Pulse Check.


Board Advisory Services

The complimentary board advisory clinics, in partnership with Charities Unit, aim to help charities and non-profit organisations strengthen their organisational effectiveness and governance.


Board Match is CNPL’s flagship programme to bring diversity and rejuvenation to Boards of non-profit organisations. It matches senior executives with at least five years of management and leadership experiences from both the public and private sectors to the Boards of non-profit organisations.


BoardPulse is a self-assessment diagnostic tool for Non-profit Boards to further strengthen their leadership capability and capacity. It provides insights for Boards to reflect upon their developmental next steps to enhancing overall effectiveness and efficiency.

Board Chair Forum

Specially curated sessions for Board Members to network and share on pressing / emergent / sensitive issues surrounding Boards of Charities. These forums are organised with Professional Consulting Firms, in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Directors and National Council of Social Services.

Board Connect Forums Specially curated sessions where hot topics are being delivered via a panel of experts (professionals in that specific topic) and practitioners (current Board members or Executive Directors equivalent) in a panel setting. This is where participants will be able to ask pressing questions in an interactive and engaging style. The sessions are organised in collaboration with Charities Unit/Sector Administrators/Professional Consulting Firms.

Board Connect Workshops

Short 3-hour type “hands-on” workshops specially designed for Board members and Senior Management Team members to gain deeper insights into very specific topics. During these workshops, CNPL’s facilitators would typically share the theories, backgrounds, methodologies and templates, such that participants will be able to apply them when they return back to their Charities/Institution of Public Character/Non-Profit Organisations. The workshops are organised in collaboration with Professional Services Firms/Sector Administrators.

Leadership Alumni

An alumni network comprising of members that co-create solutions and catalyse change for the benefit of others. These members are made up of participants from the ACE Leadership Capstone Programme for Non-Profit Organisations, Social Leadership Singapore Programme, and ToteBoard Overseas Scholarship Programme.

S.T.A.R. Mentorship Programme

This is a complimentary programme supported under the Tote Board’s Non-Profit Sector Transformation Initiative (TB-NTI).
