What is the NAC Junior Board?

The NAC Junior Board is a leading group of young professionals that act as ambassadors of NAC’s mission. The 40-member Board is composed of diverse professionals from a variety of fields who use their personal and professional networks to  fundraise, advocate, and volunteer in support of NAC’s vital services. The Junior Board is a fulfilling and fun way to have a direct impact on the lives of NAC kids. 

Every member brings a unique talent to our group and we welcome candidates who have a passion and commitment for NAC. Members are encouraged to think big about innovative solutions to aid the organization, create and coordinate fundraising and volunteer activities, and involve and mentor future candidates. Through these responsibilities and close work with the Board of Directors members develop their own leadership skills that enable them to advance their careers and become appreciating assets to NAC’s families.
