The JA Young Professional board is a committed group of individuals who want to give back above and beyond regular volunteerism. These supporters come from all over Richmond and from a diverse range of careers to help JA's fundraising intitiatives.

If you are interested in joining our YP board we invite you to complete our interest application here.  Members join us in July of each year and serve for a two year term. In spring 2020 we will begin to encourage applications and by July 1, 2020 we will have our next round of YPs finalized.  Please contact Bev Bean at with any further questions.
