The Children’s Hospital Foundation Teen Board is made up of students in 9th through 12th grade. Meetings occur monthly, on the second Tuesday of the month, from September through May. Additionally, there is also a mandatory retreat held in August. Meetings take place in the conference room at the Children’s Hospital Foundation office unless otherwise specified.
The role of the Teen Board is to help expand the base of volunteer support at the high school level among service-oriented school groups within the Oklahoma City metro. The Teen Board will represent Children’s Hospital Foundation and work to increase and enhance community awareness of the Foundation. The Teen Board will plan and host fundraising events throughout the year; all efforts benefit Children’s Hospital Foundation directly.
Board members have the opportunity to develop leadership and volunteer skills, as well as utilize their talents to build a professional network with their peers from around the city. Each individual is asked to commit to a personal fundraising minimum of $250.
