Associate Board​ of Directors

Springboard to Success(S2S) is pleased to announce the launch of an Associate Board of Directors! Our inaugural board of young professionals are eager to give back to their community, connect with peers, and learn about philanthropy in Chicago.


S2S supports programs and partners that propel Chicago Housing Authority residents on their pathways to academic success, economic stability, and independence. It is our vision that youth currently living in CHA households achieve housing stability as an adult without the requirement of a housing subsidy.

Board Overview

With the institution of an Associate Board, Springboard to Success(S2S) will encourage young professionals to share resources, time, and talent to provide leadership and raise funds in support of our organization and its mission. The Associate Board’s objective is to support the overall mission and activities of S2S by acting as ambassadors for the organization, introducing the organization to new potential supporters, and raising funds via events and social media campaigns targeted at young professionals. The chance to serve on the Associate Board is an excellent professional development opportunity.
