The Associate Board is open to young people, ages 21-35, in the Northeast Region who are passionate about the work of NPH USA and committed to spreading the mission and raising funds for NPH. Many of our current members are former international volunteers, sponsors of children in an NPH home, or have family and other ties to NPH USA.
The Mid-Atlantic/Northeast Associate Board is looking for new members! If you interested in joining or would like more information, please contact our Associate Board Chair Allison Ahern at firstname.lastname@example.org.
