Huckleberry’s Young Professionals Board
Want to Be Part of Something More?
Join Huckleberry’s Young Professionals Board!
In 1967, Huckleberry opened its flagship program, Huckleberry House, the first runaway youth shelter in the nation, at a time when running away as a youth was considered a crime. Fifty years later, we have grown to provide 6,500 youth annually with a continuum of services that remains rooted, just as it did in 1967, in the fundamental rights of young people to be safe, healthy, educated,and treated justly.
What We Do: Over the years, our services have grown to include primary and reproductive care, counseling, case management,health education, juvenile justice diversion, and college access to under served youth and families.
Huckleberry’s longevity is a testament to the agency’s values, and our ability to adapt and grow to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Each year, we host two major FUNdraisers along with smaller, social gatherings like Cocktails for a Cause/bar nights, shopping events, exclusive dining experiences, and shows/performances.
We are seeking Young Professionals who are ages 25 to 35 and are passionate about our mission, and interested in using their knowledge, skills, expertise, and network to raise awareness and mobilize support for Huckleberry Youth Programs.
