Hi! Thanks for reading this posting regarding volunteer opportunities at NEW Academy located in Canoga Park with an additional location in Pico Union.

I am part of the Board of Directors and we are looking for some dynamic individuals to join us in shaping the organization for the next 3 - 5 years. We are currently responsible for the safety, well being and development of 340 children at our Pico Union location and approximately 600 children at our Canoga Park location. Both campuses have a large English learner and high poverty student population, however, both do well on state mandated tests. These 2 charter schools operate under the idea that Arts and Science can be applied to all classes and we have a very dedicated staff of teachers, administrators and support staff that help create that vision. We are currently implementing dual immersion bilingual programs in both campuses.

Currently we are a Board of 6 with representations from Education, Finance and Academia and are looking to expand the Board to add members with expertise in:

- Legal Environment

- Fundraising/ Development

- Community Members in each location

- Accounting and or Finance

We would ideally like the new members to commit to 3 years of crafting and creating a strategy on how to manage the schools which comes to the Board in many proposals from our excellent Principals. The commitment is for one meeting a month; switching between each location - and to particiapte in a Board retreat. This is not a paid position; but lunch is served at every meeting and it gives you a chance to put your skillset to the test in being a Board member and giving back to your communities.

Thanks again for your time and look forward to hearing from you!
