Generation Citizen’s Local Boards are non-governing bodies whose mission is to provide vital programmatic, networking and public relations support, while helping drive local fundraising strategy.

The Local Advisory Boards are comprised of dedicated community members from all sectors including government, the private sector, non-profit, and, importantly, teachers and administrators who have worked with the Generation Citizen program.


In collaboration with each local Executive Director, the Local Boards serve to raise the profile of the Generation Citizen program locally, ensuring a strong community of supporters while driving strategic development opportunities for the organization.
