About the Junior Board

Though New York City itself is in some ways the greatest classroom on earth, an immense number of inner-city students have never had the opportunity to venture beyond their own neighborhoods. The Inner-City Junior Board — comprised of young professionals and headed by an Executive Committee — provides hands-on support to inner-city Catholic school students in our participating schools.

Junior Board members work in all industries and live throughout the tri-state area, but their common desire is to help the boys and girls of our inner-city schools by providing them with enriching experiences that they may not have otherwise had the opportunity to attain.

From monthly trips to cultural landmarks, athletic programs and community service projects, the effect our Junior Board members have on the kids in our schools is incalculable.

With ongoing COVID protocol changes, our events are currently primarily remote.

  • Field Trips to cultural locations and interactive experiences around the world including museums and animal exhibits.
  • Student Holiday Celebrations, including Christmas cookie decorating, Valentine’s Day arts and crafts, and Easter egg painting.

Volunteer Opportunity: Committee members work directly with students and/or have the option to lead the committee’s efforts by election to various Co-Chair and Executive Co-Chair positions.

Time Commitment: Things look a little different right now, but we always appreciate your help in any way.
