We are collaborating with community Youth Clubs, Leon County Schools, Tallahassee Teen Center, Living Stones International, other youth organizations. Collaborating is essential to our organization to help us better reach students in the community, volunteering, operating space for events, and provide better overall services and programs.
The role of the board of directors to oversee all aspects of the organization. Our organization is unique, in that we also have a student advisory board to help gauge what the students see as major issues to be addressed. Both boards are integral in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of all programs. The Board of Directors also assume responsibility for the financial success, government compliance, and ethical issues for the organization. All board of directors duration on the board is perpetual, the student advisory board are voted on yearly. We have had great success with this combination of boards and look forward to continued success in the future.
