Our Board of Directors Our Board of Directors is a vital part of our success, without whom this would not be possible. The Board of Directors is responsible for the organization's financial well-being and accountability, ensuring that program activities are consistent with our mission and oversight, including hiring paid staff. We are proud of and thankful for all the work they do. Right now, we are looking for new board members. We require resourceful, energetic individuals who are excited about our program and our goal of guiding young boys and girls to become educated, hardworking, self-sufficient adults. Board members are expected to promote the organization and help with fund-raising. However, the board is not responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organization. The committee meets once a month, and members are strongly encouraged to make a six-year commitment, as this helps us ensure an experienced and capable board. In addition, board members are expected to participate in other occasional activities such as fundraisers, board subcommittees, and email discussions.
