The Youth Dreamers, Inc. Board of Directors
Est. June 2003

Our Board of Directors meets on the second Monday of each month. In September and October, we invite both youth and adults to apply using a simple questionnaire. The full board reviews these applications, invites perspective members to attend a meeting to introduce themselves and learn more about us.  The youth vote on new youth members, and adults vote on new adult members in November.  Similarly, in order to elect officers, youth vote for youth and adults vote for adults.  Board members volunteer at events, provide transportation for students, participate on committees, help raise funds, attend various community meetings on behalf of the organization, and participate in our annual board retreat to reflect on the year and set new goals.
