Action for Healthy Kids Auxiliary Board Opening

Join the movement to create healthier schools!

Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is expanding our Auxiliary Board and is looking for a diverse group of passionate professionals who are interested in positively impacting the health and wellness of children across the nation and making a local impact in the Chicago area. This new board is dedicated to supporting and building awareness of the AFHK mission – all kids deserve to be healthy, active and ready to learn.

• Prior experience with fundraising, recruitment, public relations, event planning and social media for nonprofit organizations preferred

• Comfortable (or willing to be trained on) being an ambassador for AFHK

Expectations:

• Serve as an advocate of AFHK to help us raise awareness of our programs/events

• Attend a monthly board meeting every 3rd Wednesday of the month (allowed to miss 2-3)

• $500 annual give or get fundraising commitment

• Commit to a one-year term of service

• Help recruit people from your network (and outside your network) to attend events

• Actively participate in meetings and complete work outside of board meetings. On average, projects will take an additional one to two hours per month outside of board meetings.

• Volunteer your time and skills! For example, you could lead, coordinate and participate in one of our annual events that are volunteer and/or fundraising focused.

Benefits:

• Play a part in building the strength, impact and suitability of a new board!

• Gain leadership experience

• Utilize your skills to benefit a great cause

• Attend/create networking opportunities

• Build event planning, business development and fundraising skills

• Join the movement of people committed to healthier schools

• Get involved in the Chicago community

• Have fun while making an impact in children’s lives

We strongly encourage those who reflect our communities to apply, including women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, LGBT+, bilingual writers and speakers and veterans. Successful candidates must be committed to working with diverse populations.
