The NHCO Young Community Leaders Board is a group of young community members who are dedicated to helping NHCO further its mission of addressing the needs of people in crisis, hardship and poverty.

The YCLB is a new initiative from NHCO to more deeply engage with young adults (ages 21-40) interested in playing an active role in providing services to the communities in Northern Allegheny County. The Board will consist of young professionals from a diverse range of industries and backgrounds that will work to increase awareness of the work of NHCO and expand its advocacy efforts. YCLB members will have the opportunity to connect with other young professional’s interest in community service and career networking. This is also an opportunity for members to build their resumes, grow their network, and learn about Nonprofit Board Governance.

Working closely with NHCO’s ED and Development Team, the objectives of the YCLB are to:

  • Organize one event a year targeted at young professionals in Allegheny County area to educate and engage them about NHCO’s work.
  • Advocate for NHCO and engage with individuals, businesses, government agencies and other non-profit organizations.
