Associate Board

The Achievement Centers for Children Associate Board is a dynamic group of young professionals who are committed to supporting the Achievement Centers through philanthropic and volunteer activities. Our Associate Board members lend their time, expertise and financial support to help children with disabilities and their families realize their dreams and discover their potential, while expanding their own personal and professional networks. Our primary focus is to support agency programs and services through fundraising and financial support, sponsorship of A Most Excellent Race, volunteering for agency programs and promoting awareness of services provided by the Achievement Centers for Children.

The Associate Board holds regular meetings that feature programming about current disability issues as well as updates on the work of the Achievement Centers. Interested individuals are welcomed to attend meetings to learn more about the Associate Board and the agency.
