The CYV Advisory Board is comprised of youth and adults with a passion for our mission and programming. They help advise, advocate, and support CYV’s strategic direction and mission delivery.

Recruitment for board members is an ongoing process; board terms often begin in the spring and individuals serve a three-year term, with the option of a second term. We are looking for individuals who have the following areas of expertise and experiences:

  • Fundraising (both from individuals and through grants/foundations)
  • Alumni development and engagement
  • Multicultural youth development, leadership, and education
  • K-12 schools
  • Federal, state or local government, including the courts
  • Civic education and engagement
  • PR/marketing, including social media

Center for Youth Voice Committees

The Center for Youth Voice Board includes four standing committees:

  • Executive & Board Development Committee
  • Program Committee
  • Alumni Engagement Committee
  • Financial Development Committee

Other Ways to Connect

Occasionally we pull together a task force of advisors to work through a specific event or issue. Serving on a task force is a great volunteer opportunity and allows individuals to become more familiar with CYV's mission and programs.
