Board of Directors Opportunities

Our organization is currently seeking volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors. Because we serve girls from a wide variety of life experience and backgrounds, it is important to us that our Board of Directors reflects our whole community, therefore we are seeking representation from all parts of our community.

Interested individuals are not required to have any previous board experience. There are no specific educational or professional requirements to join. The goal of this interest form is to start a conversation with you and learn more about how we can partner together in this work.
