The Kids’ Table

The Raise Foundation’s Young Professionals Board

In addition to our Board of Directors, The Raise Foundation is honored and proud to have a caring and dynamic board of young professionals who makes a significant difference for our organization and in their local community!

The Kids’ Table, as we fondly refer to this special group of leaders, works with The Raise Foundation to help strengthen families. They believe that every child deserves a happy and safe childhood. They come to the table once a month on behalf of at-risk kids to plan the nonprofit’s annual fundraising gala and an annual  basic needs drive (e.g., in 2016 – Sweaters, Shoes, and Socks), and serve as Raise Awareness Ambassadors during child safety awareness campaigns. They also take turns mentoring/presenting to Youth Action Council Members (YAC) at the Family Resource Centers.

Each member’s participation is based on their availability. If you live or work in Orange County or a neighboring county, and would like to get involved, please let us know.

Looking for networking opportunities? Want to help make a meaningful difference in your community? Interested in building your resume? Then this is the group for you! To lear more, attend our Annual Volunteer Recruitment & Networking Mixer set for each January. The next one is January 12, 2017.

Please contact kerigee@theraisefoundation.org if you would like more information on the Young Professionals Board (YPB).
