The Junior Board unites a younger generation of leaders around the mission and goals of The Valerie Fund. Members of the Junior Board dedicate their time and talents to spreading awareness of The Valerie Fund throughout their communities in New York City and the surrounding areas. The group comprises dynamic, enthusiastic young professionals between the ages of 22 and 40 and meets monthly to discuss new initiatives, plan events, and learn more about the organization. Engaging with The Valerie Fund, its staff, and its seasoned supporters enables Junior Board members to serve as impassioned, informed advocates who will carry the organization into the future.
Junior Board members participate in many aspects of The Valerie Fund, including community outreach, event planning, and member recruitment. As a Junior Board member, you will also be invited to serve as a volunteer for major Valerie Fund events, and beginning fall 2015, you will be able to participate in a mentoring program designed to provide Valerie Fund high school patients with one-on-one educational and emotional support from a close peer.
