Young Professionals Board (YPB)

The mission of the YPB of Day One is to help support Day One in our efforts to provide legal services, preventive education, and peer leadership opportunities to NYC youth. Its goal is to increase the awareness of Day One, support the functioning of the organization, and help put an end to domestic violence in our community.

The YPB is a hands-on group that provides advice, assistance, and imagination to the staff and Board of Day One. The YPB is a group with strong ties to the community, knowledge of what is happening around town, and a commitment to philanthropy and volunteerism. Each individual member brings unique talents to the board—expertise in domestic violence, youth issues, education, legal services, policy, fundraising, event planning, nonprofit administration—reflecting the diverse community that is New York City.

If you are interested in joining this dedicated group of young professionals, please email Lindsay Mitcher at lmitcher@dayoneny.org.
