Associate Board

The Associate Board is a diverse group of passionate, like-minded individuals who come together and create lasting change for marginalized communities. The D4D Associate Board’s goal is to develop and implement activities to further D4D’s mission through social gatherings, volunteer days, fundraising events, and more. As an Associate Board member, you have the opportunity to serve on committees and turn your own ideas into reality. The room for growth is endless.
