Yours Humanly is looking for board members to serve on its Board of Directors. Serving on the Yours Humanly Board of Directors is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about strengthening leadership and governance in the nonprofit sector, and particularly the individual who wants to make a profound difference through thoughtful collaboration, creativity, and action in the lives of children in need.
Our board members champion the importance of exceptional leadership and believe-as we do-that every organization needs astrong, effective, and wholly committed board to fully realize its potential for good. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a board member, our board members are active ambassadors who are expected to responsibly represent Yours Humanly to the public and their respective communities, and to advocate for Yours Humanly’s mission, programs, and services as appropriate.
Board members are expected to attend (or call in) one board meeting per month. They are expected to read board materials in advance of board meetings and come prepared to ask questions and participate in discussions.
Board members are expected to serve on at least one board committee and to actively participate in committee work.
Board members are expected to play a fully engaged and active role in identifying and securing the financial resources necessary for Yours Humanly to advance its mission. Board members are expected to leverage professional relationships and connections to secure partnerships and to help the Development Committee and staff identify and solicit potential funders, as well as directly invest in Yours Humanly’s work by making a personal contribution each year.
Membership on the Yours Humanly Board of Directors is an invitation to work with like-minded leaders and professionals to make a profound impact on the lives of thousands of children in need through the power of education.
