The Generation Citizen Associate Board is a group of dedicated young professionals from various sectors including finance, non-profit, consulting, and education.

The Associate Boards are comprised of enthusiastic young professionals across all sectors including government, private sector, non-profit, and, importantly, Democracy Coach alumni who have worked with the Generation Citizen program.

In collaboration with each local Executive Director, the Associate Boards serve to strategically raise the profile of the Generation Citizen through networking events, fundraising opportunities, and more.
