Friends of TYS
Junior Board for the Tidewater Youth Services Foundation Board of Directors
Friends of the Tidewater Youth Services Foundation consist of business leaders, young professionals, and others with an emerging interest in philanthropy who are interested in forwarding the mission of the Tidewater Youth Services.
Friends of the Tidewater Youth Services Foundation have three primary goals:
– Raise Awareness
– Raise Funds
Here’s just a few of the ways the group achieves these goals:
Promoting the TYS Foundation through social networking;
Volunteering and inviting friends to Foundation events;
Sharing individual skills through a speakers’ bureau;
Providing in-kind support in keeping with the individual’s area of expertise;
Promoting the TYS Foundation within their own workplace by:
– Raising awareness about our organization and our mission
– Sharing information about our participation in workplace charitable campaigns
– Sharing information on volunteer opportunities/needs.
“The Friends group is a great bunch of people committed to ‘walking the walk.’ And with our help, young men and women are now walking toward a brighter day.”
