Board Responsibilities & Structure

Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining relationship of board to your organization, including its role, responsibilities, and structure
  • Document defining the roles and responsibilities of individual board members, including empty seats if applicable
Additional Details

We need everything! Currently we have our President, Vice-President, and Secretary. We need to know how to properly set-up and manage a successful board; and looking for someone to walk us through the process.

What We Have In Place
  • We are looking for someone that doesn't mind walking us through this process from start to finish. We need to establish a strong foundation for our Board of Directors to use going forward as our organization grows.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,248 , allowing us to continue mission progression helping adults get the education and career tools they need to live a better quality of life.

The Board of Directors is the first line when it comes to a non-profit. It is important that we establish strong foundations while we develop and manage a dependable and diverse board. This project will allow us to scale in terms of stability and efficiency. We want future partners and donors to see that we have a strong board that is active in fulfilling the organization's mission in the community.

We help individuals 17+ who did not complete high school by offering a 3-6 month alternative program that allows them to earn their Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE - formally GED).
