Are you passionate about helping teen girls break barriers and take their seat at the table? Step Up is currently seeking board members to serve on the Chicago Chapter board.
Step Up Chapter boards are fundraising boards, working under the strategic direction of the Step Up National Board. As a board member, you will help us amplify our message, expand our network, and raise resources to help sustain and grow our programming. Our goal is to have served 12,000 teen girls by 2020--and you can be a part of that impact through board leadership!
Board candidates do not need to be experts in mentoring or fundraising--we train you! Successful board members are passionate about propelling teen girls to fulfill their potential and gain access to college and careers, excited to make connections for Step Up to corporate and individual supporters, and eager to engage in the programs you’re helping support. Board terms begin in January 2018, and initial terms are 2 years.
WHAT TO DO NEXT:
Interested in learning more? Sign up for one of our upcoming Board Info Session webinars, which will overview the board position, outline next steps, and allow time for questions. After the webinars, if you decide to move forward in the process, you will be invited to a board candidate interview with the Step Up Board Nominating Committee in November or December, and attend a Board Retreat on Saturday, January 27.
