Board of Directors

As young leaders who have overcome many obstacles ourselves, we believe that we are often best suited to inspire our peers to build strong relationships and to engage in our community. Youth participate at all levels of decision-making and learn all aspects of organizational development from strategic planning and fundraising to program design and evaluation. Sixty percent of our board are 25 and under, and 80% are people of color.
