Volunteer

Our board of directors is composed entirely of volunteers. We meet regularly to ensure the coverage of all administrative tasks related to running our organization and to empower our staff to deliver effective programming to our students.

The committees below each have a board member assigned to them. They will work closely with volunteers interested in joining those committees to manage the duties and responsibilities listed under each.
