Board Member

The mission of Brookline Teen Outreach is to provide quality resources free of charge to youth ages 10-18 in the Greater Pittsburgh area to maximize their potential through educational and social programming, life skills workshops, tutoring, community service opportunities, and licensed professional counseling.

At Brookline Teen Outreach, we believe in maximizing youth potential and building the community. We have adopted a holistic approach to serving youth by offering high-quality and modern, licensed counseling services, free tutoring, community service opportunities, and dynamic programming. The center’s innovative and comprehensive programming provides something for everyone who walks through our doors.

The founders, Caitlin and Diana, established Brookline Teen Outreach in 2015, because of a pressing need to do more for the youth of South Pittsburgh. Brookline, and its surrounding neighborhoods, have the highest percentage of youth within the city of Pittsburgh, but they do not have facilities or resources that cater to the enrichment of teens outside of the school setting.  We hope to make improvements for our students and their families that reach beyond the walls of our center and change our city for the better.

As our organization continues to grow, so does our need for additional board members that can help advise our decisions and be actively involved in making an impact on the community we serve.  As an board member you will be asked to:

  • Attend all board meetings to the best of my ability
  • Maintain knowledge of the organization and personal commitment to its goals and objectives
  • Stay informed about what’s going on in the organization, ask questions and request information, participate in and take responsibility for making decisions on issues, policies, and other matters.
  • Make every effort to vote in every public election
  • Work in good faith with staff and other board members as partners toward achievement of our goals
  • Actively participate in two or more fundraising activities per year
  • Actively engage in two or more tabling and community outreach events per year
  • Be excused from discussions and votes where there is a conflict of interest

At this time, we are seeking board members with a background in law, education, grant-writing, and accounting.  If you have a passion for serving youth in unique and inspiring ways, we hope to hear from you.
