Junior board members are enthusiastic volunteers, strong ambassadors for the organization’s mission, and spirited fundraisers. The wave of retirements today and in the near future will leave many charitable organizations scrambling to find their next board directors. Junior Boards provide a natural opportunity to identify and cultivate new leadership.
Expand your professional network: you will have the opportunity to meet new people, including board members’ professional networks. You’ll discover that you have access to mentors and professional opportunities you otherwise wouldn’t.
Make a difference: serving on a junior board allows you to experience, first-hand, the operations of an organization at a high-level. You may even play a role in envisioning the organization’s greater potential, and orchestrating high-impact initiatives.
Develop new skill-sets: you will have the opportunity to select the committees and activities that you want to dedicate your time to, allowing you to develop new skills and utilize other talents you have.
Gain new perspective: by engaging with people from diverse backgrounds, including the board, staff, and donor community, you have the opportunity to learn about issues outside your area of business expertise.

Nonprofit organizations utilize their junior boards to help build their base of community service volunteers, access pro bono skills and services, and advise in programmatic areas. For the junior members, these boards present an opportunity to develop new skills and broaden their professional and social circles, all while serving a cause they feel passionate about.
Junior board members leverage both their professional and personal network to organize at least 1 event each year to raise funds for their non-profit.
Junior boards typically meet 4 times each year with options to attend meetings remotely via teleconference. On average, those meetings last 1-2 hours.
Annual fundraising goal for each junior board member will range anywhere from $250–$2,500 depending on the organization.
