Program Participation Goals

Joining a nonprofit board is a serious commitment. Board members play a critical leadership role in determining the quality of programs and long-term sustainability of organizations. They are responsible for ensuring the organization has strong leadership, sound finances, effective fundraising, and high impact. Serving as a board member in the education sector is a personally and professionally rewarding opportunity to influence better outcomes for all children served by our partner organizations in our community.
