Associate Board

Building momentum along several empowerment movements, San Franciscans are looking for meaningful ways to get involved or give back. Our Associate Board does just that. We are an assembly of motivated locals, from all walks of life, who volunteer their time, skills, and passion, to advance affordable, quality child care in their community and beyond.

If you want to make a direct impact in the life of San Francisco families, this is the best place to start. We have outlined our goals, responsibilities, and benefits.
