Youth in Focus’ Board of Directors is a hardworking group of volunteers with skills, experience and resources that they’re eager to use to support our students from a position of organizational leadership. Our board is made up of men and women from a range of professional and life backgrounds. Our goal is to have a group that represents a diversity of perspectives, working closely together, to help sustain an organization that is mission focused and soundly run.
The board can be as many as 19 but has typically averaged about a dozen members. We are always on the lookout for people who can be effective members of the team. We prefer to work closely with potential board members on a key project before inviting them to join the board, as a means of making sure the match is a good fit for all concerned. The Youth in Focus board is a working board; members take an active role in setting policy, evaluating effectiveness and creating support for the organization. The board meets together monthly and at other times as projects require. All members are required to make an annual gift to Youth in Focus that is significant for them.
