Put a Youth on your Board of Directors!

November 6, 2016

 

"Oh my, we can't have a young person on our board!"

 

" They are in school when we have our meetings."

 

" We deal with confidential information and youth may not understand how we do things."

 

Baloney.  I've heard it all as a grant writer.  Here's the truth.  The only reason you don't have a high school student or college student on your Board of Directors is because you don't want to engage young people.  That hurts, huh?

 

If you can list a student on your board, your grant chances increase by at least 50%!  Change your meeting times to accommodate their schedules.  And for goodness sake, let them vote!  It's the 21st century.
