New Way to Volunteer: Join A CARE Board Committee

If you are interested in a different way to volunteer for CARE, consider serving on one of its board committees. The key committees where help is needed: Development, Education and Outreach, and Technology and Innovation. The Development Committee works to advance CARE’s mission by helping the staff raise much-needed funds. The Education and Outreach Committee works to develop and implement new educational materials and programming. Our Technology Committee works on improvements to the website and social media as well as relevant technologies to the organization. Board service is not required to serve on a Board Committee. To apply, contact CARE Executive Director Anna Flores at [email protected].
