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 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, four 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.

Interested in joining?

Membership is open to any young professional interested in the Children's Bureau mission of preserving families and protecting the future of Indiana's children.


  • $100 yearly tax-deductible contribution to Children's Bureau. (Flexible payment options are available!)
  • Members serve on one of the standing committees: service, events, corporate relations or membership.
