ABOUT THE BOARD
The board of directors’ role in advancing the mission of the Youth Club of Trinidad, Inc. was initially establishing the mission and direction for the Youth Club and hiring the Executive Director. They are now, along with the Executive Director, ensuring that the Youth Club has adequate resources to carry out its mission and provide legal and financial oversight.
Board members may not serve more than two consecutive terms of three years and contribute at least $200 annually or in kind. One hundred percent of our board members contribute. They have gone above the minimum by purchasing many items we have needed for the Youth Club.
Our volunteers help in many ways, but due to COVID, they haven’t worked as much as in the past. Volunteers supervise the children, serve meals and snacks, play games, teach specialty classes. They have also supported building and grounds maintenance and writing grants. We appreciate everything they do to help support Youth Club of Trinidad to transform lives of children and build their futures.
