Attend Junior Board Meetings: Meet with the WFF Development Director quarterly to share Junior Board and broader Pitch In updates, engage in group conversation and learning about the nonprofit space, and plan future initiatives aligned to Pitch In’s ongoing vision and work.
Serve Pitch In Family Dinners: Three times per school year, serve a meal to students and their families during “Pitch In Family Night,” hosted at each of our school partner sites. Family Dinners happen at each of our schools approximately monthly from about 4:30-6pm, and there is one for each of our 12 classes, so every quarter offers a variety of date options.
Host Innovative Fundraisers: Brainstorm, plan, and execute a variety of fundraisers to help spread the word about Pitch In and inspire more people to get involved. The Junior Board has the power to raise a collective $25,000, which would help us launch one entirely new Pitch In cohort of 4th graders!
Engage in School-Based Service Projects: Help the Pitch In team respond to school-based needs and projects surfaced by our communities, principals, teachers, and counselors. These may include planning/hosting year-end carnivals, game nights/lock-ins at school, and holiday/winter gear drives in support of Pitch In students.
Invest in Personal Growth: Commit to learning how to leverage their knowledge, access, agency, and perspectives to become thoughtful, conscientious advocates for communities that have historically been marginalized.
