Project Details

What We Need
  • 1-2 page summary of takeaways and trends from interviewing key individuals (no more than 8 interviews total)
  • Identification of the board’s strengths and recommendations for areas of improvement for board members collectively and individually
Additional Details

We currently have 14 board members and are looking to add to our team. Gaining insight into who we should add to our team will help us as we enter a recruitment season for future board members.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have information on our current board members, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time to meet to discuss this, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,773 , allowing us to bring more storytelling workshops to more youth in LA

As PLUS ME continues to grow, we are analyzing how we can strengthen our board to ensure we meet our goals moving forward.
