Young Professionals Advisory Board

In 2010, the Children's Bureau Young Professionals Advisory Board was organized to offer young professionals (ages 21-40) the opportunity to learn about non-profit board service and contribute to the Children's Bureau mission.

Members of the YPAB:

  • Organize fundraising events for Children's Bureau

  • Participate in volunteer activities with Children's Bureau youth

  • Have the opportunity to sit on a Children's Bureau board committee

  • Network with others interested in giving back to the community

Membership Structure

The YPAB is led by an executive committee including three officers, three committee chairs and several at-large members who meet bi-monthly. The committees (membership, events and service) meet on opposite months. Officers, committee chairs and at-large members are expected to attend all executive committee meetings.
