Junior Board

The United Neighborhood Houses (UNH) Junior Board is a community of young professionals in their 20s and 30s dedicated to improving the lives of low- and moderate-income New Yorkers. The mission of the Junior Board is to support UNH's critical work of delivering social services and innovative programs to New York City neighborhoods through its settlement houses in all five boroughs. UNH acts on behalf of its 37 nonprofit members by advocating for public policies and social services, and working with them to build institutional leadership. Members of the Junior Board are UNH ambassadors, raising funds to support UNH's efforts and building institutional leadership by engaging socially responsible young professionals in the work of UNH and its settlement houses.

The Junior Board understands that many young professionals in New York City have the skills, resources and drive to affect social and political change. The Junior Board offers unique opportunities for members to serve as advocates for UNH's important work, meeting with political candidates and elected officials, planning social and policy events, and volunteering directly in New York City's settlement houses. Junior Board members learn about the challenges facing nonprofit social service providers in New York City and gain the tools to overcome these obstacles, providing ample opportunity for Board leadership and personal development.
