Board Members

The many professionals who sit on our Corporate Board of Directors play an important role in helping us provide valuable programs and services to the children of the East Valley. Board members are involved on a variety of levels to ensure the fiscal, programmatic and operational success of the organization. Stewards of the organization, Board members take part in all fundraising activities, secure donations and support for our endeavors, recruit new Board members, attend monthly Board meetings, participate in one or more of our operating committees, determine policy, and implement an annual strategic plan that ensures that the organization continues to grow to serve more children, and adheres to the highest standards in providing youth development services.
