Be part of a team of young professionals working to end homelessness—join our Junior Board!

June 27, 2017

Would you like to share your skills, insights, and enthusiasm with other like-minded young professionals and help end homelessness in Virginia? Then consider volunteering as a member of Virginia Supportive Housing’s Junior Board of Directors. We’re currently recruiting new members to join our Junior Board and expand our impact.

Who should consider joining our Junior Board? Young professionals under 40 who are ready to help engage the community in our mission to end homelessness in Virginia.

 What does the Junior Board do? Junior Board members help end homelessness by thanking our supporters, discovering new opportunities to grow our network of support, and serving as ambassadors and advocates for VSH in the community.

Virginia Supportive Housing helps once-chronically homeless individuals reclaim their lives through permanent housing and supportive services. Junior Board members advance that mission by being aware of what we do and teaching their community how we do it. Members help us build our network of supporters through activities and events, such as an annual fundraiser that YOU can help develop.

Members are expected to attend 9 out of 12 monthly meetings annually (generally on Tuesday evenings), with volunteer and advocacy opportunities spread throughout the year.

 I’m interested. What’s next? If you’re a young professional in Central Virginia who wants to help us end homelessness in the Commonwealth, please contact Matt Morrison at [email protected]. Once we have a sufficient number of qualified, interested individuals, an informational session will follow. Matt will keep you posted well in advance of the session. YOU can help us make homelessness history!
