Sierra Service Project is guided by a qualified and active executive board. All board members have past experience working with youth and a close association with Sierra Service Project, either as a youth participant, staff member, or adult leader. Board members possess a very diverse range of professional qualifications and bring expertise to the board from the areas of youth ministry, education, accounting and finance, business management, and law. All board members contribute financially to SSP, and all give generously of their time.
The Sierra Service Project Board of Directors meets in person four times annually for one or two-day sessions. Between meetings, board business is conducted via teleconference. Standing board committees include: Finance, Governance & Nominations, Outreach, Personnel, and Resource Development.
SSP is looking for a few individuals to serve on our Board of Directors. Candidates must be passionate about serving teens and strengthening low-income communities throughout the Western United States.
The SSP Board focuses on fundraising, strategy, and governance. Our organization needs diversity in its Board – diversity of life experience, background, skills, religious affiliation, age, gender and ethnicity. If you live in the western United States and are passionate about SSP’s mission, this could be a great volunteer opportunity for you. Board meetings occur 3-4 times a year, with hour-long committee calls every month or so. Terms are three years.
If you would like more information about Board service, responsibilities and time commitments, please contact Rick Eaton, SSP’s Executive Director, at 916-488-6441.
