Why join a Junior Board?

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.

What do Junior Board Members do, anyway?

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.
