Thank you for interest in the Junior Board. Unfortunately we are not taking new board members due to the state of the agency. If you are interested in pursuing this possibility in the future, please email Christy Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will put you in touch with the appropriate contact.
We know the importance of volunteering and giving back to our community. Whether it be through serving at a soup kitchen or organizing a collection of winter coats and gloves, our human nature is to help those in need. Freedom House has been helping those that are homeless and working poor since 1983. Throughout the years, we have benefited from young people like yourself that are committed to making Richmond a better place through using your talents by volunteering. We are now offering an even greater opportunity for you to be more involved in our volunteer efforts.
Freedom House has developed a Junior Board comprised of middle and high school students from Richmond and the surrounding counties. Non-profits are run by a Board of Directors. This is a group of community leaders that are not paid and they donate their time to helping the agency raise awareness about their mission and programs. Our Junior Board will do the same for Freedom House!
Here’s what you will gain by becoming a member:
- Leadership skills in working with a non profit agency
- First hand experience with board structure
- Understanding of parliamentary procedures and fine tuning decision making
- Great opportunity to meet community leaders and business leaders that support our agency
- Opportunities to create and lead fun events for your school and/or church
- Networking with youth your age from other parts of the city
The Junior Board meets each month and meetings generally last approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours unless it is a special project night.
If you would like to work together for the greater good, email Christy Ellis, at email@example.com for information on how you can get involved!
