"I cried reading the story I am going to share with you tonight," Nicole Giambarrese said as she stood in front of a packed room at Church Publick in Tribeca last year. She told the story of a young boy whose father was imprisoned and he was being raised by his grandmother. At the age of 10 he was struggling to put his life together, while contemplating one day losing his elderly grandmother-his only caregiver.
Nicole is Astor's first Young Professionals president. She represents a common paradigm shift in non-profit board models. Eighty-eight percent on non-profits in the United States have no board members under the age of 49.
The premise of a Young Professionals Board is to engage eager millennial who are just starting in the workforce and who are thirsty to prove themselves through direct involvement. This core group of volunteers then creates a sustainable entrance to non-profit management. These millennial, typically in private sector careers, will age in to a Board Director position with an experiential advantage over their older counterparts. They will become more well-versed and far greater educated in the art of the public sector. This gives non-profits with Young Professionals Boards a development advantage.
Amanda Hahn, current chair of the Board's Social Events Committee, said she joined out of an already existing passion for giving back. "I absolutely loved being involved in charity. This was an opportunity to expand the type of charities I work with. I want to work for groups of people who can't speak for themselves. Children are innocent. They need other people to speak for them. To stand up for them."
With the constant reminder of who they are working for, the group set out to create a strategic plan for raising awareness and money for Astor. Within a year of their first meeting, they hosted five events including an amazing gala.
The Young Professionals Board is currently hard at work planning their Second Annual Gala to break the stigma around mental health. The event will take place on May 4, 2017 at the Manhattan Supreme Court. Go to goo.gl/zQyAIu for more information.
