Community Advisory Board

Great KIDS make Great COMMUNITIES relies on the assistance of a volunteer advisory board, consisting of professionals from a diverse group of youth serving organizations representing Allen County. The Board helps identify training needs in the Allen County community around the theme of asset building, positive youth development, resiliency and supporting healthy youth and families.  Board members play a central role in helping plan and execute the Annual Conference on Youth, and represent organizations who are exemplary examples of asset-building organizations in Allen County.
