Northwest Associate Board

The NPH USA Northwest Associate Board exists to engage young people in the mission of Friends and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters"), with the goal of increasing our visibility among this audience, engaging former and future international volunteers, and raising additional funds for NPH USA. The Associate Board also connects young people who care about combating global poverty and helping children in need together in a vibrant and fun community of peers.

We are grateful to our sponsors for making the event possible: Beechers Cheese, Director’s Mortgage, Blueprint Consulting, and Taco Time. Can’t wait to see you next year for another night of fun!
