About the Young Professionals Advisory Board

The Young Professionals Advisory Board of the NBCS (“YPAB”) was created to assist in the advancement of the NBCS.  The NBCS is governed by the Board of Trustees (“Board”), who are responsible for the NBCS’s goals, objectives, annual budget, curriculum, and the overall management of the school. The YPAB will support the Board in its fundraising efforts and accomplishing the School’s mission. 

The YPAB is also a great way for young professionals, of various occupations, to network and build relationships.  By working together to organize events, fundraise and volunteer at the NBCS, members of the YPAB will develop and cultivate relationships with each other, the Board, the school and the students.

By contributing occupational expertise, the YPAB will bridge the professional and business acumen of the Board with the zeal and enthusiasm of the students.

Our Mission

The YPAB is a collection of individuals charged with coming together to support and further the mission of the NBCS.  In this role,  the YPAB advises and makes recommendations to NBCS Board with respect to volunteer efforts, event coordination and fundraising campaigns, to include, but not be limited to:

  • An annual sponsorship event hosted by the Committee, and

  • Establishment of a mentorship program with the NBCS.               

The Committee shall also handle other matters as may be requested by the Board.
