Advisory Board

We are currently seeking volunteers to serve on our Advisory Board! The Advisory Board is intended to help the leadership of our program make decisions with input from our students, families and community. It will be an integral part of our planning process as we move into the future. The board will meet at least four times a year and may have some small groups that meet more frequently depending on the needs. If you are interested in joining our Advisory Board, please email our program director Tom McGee.
