Junior Board Origins

Since 1998, our Junior Board has empowered young professionals aged 20 to 40 to advance our mission through fundraising, volunteering, and advocacy. With around 25 members from diverse professions, they leverage their unique skills and passions to strengthen Children’s Place Association’s programs.

Junior Board Timeline:

  • Term: July 1 to June 30.
  • Monthly Zoom meetings: 1st Tuesday, 5:30 – 6:15 p.m. (hybrid in-person/virtual options).
  • General members can join anytime during the year, with commitment until the end of the board year (June 30).

Who are Junior Board Members?
The Junior Board is comprised of young professionals, graduate students, and senior college students aged 20 to 40, all united by their passion for supporting under-resourced communities.

How are Junior Board leadership roles determined?
At the beginning of the new fiscal year, CPA will review applicants’ roles of interest and make recommendations to the Junior Board President(s). The Junior Board President(s) will finalize roles.
