Haven’s Youth Board is a group of active, service-oriented high schoolers who meet weekly at Haven. The Board plans fundraisers for Haven and other agencies and takes part in service projects outside the Haven office. Being a part of the Youth Board is a great opportunity for developing leadership skills, making friends, giving back to the community, and having fun.
Our Youth Board meets weekly on Tuesday nights at 6pm at the Haven office. All high school students are welcome. With questions, please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
