Associate Board

The EverThrive Illinois Associate Board is a dynamic group of young leaders and professionals dedicated to assisting EverThrive IL with our advocacy and program activities.

Associate Board members have the opportunity to gain valuable skills and learn about cutting-edge public health topics, while volunteering with a statewide nonprofit organization, and making new friends!

Associate Board members are encouraged to bring their own strengths, skills, and ideas to contribute and strengthen EverThrive IL.

EverThrive IL asks that all Associate Board members commit to their terms on an annual basis. Terms begin on the first calendar day and the first fiscal year day (January 1 and July 1 respectively) every year. During this year-long term, Associate Board members are expected to:

  1. Serve as an Ambassador for EverThrive IL
  2. Remain in good standing as a member of EverThrive IL (membership stands in place of any Board dues)
  3. Support programmatic and fundraising events of the Associate Board and the greater organization 
  4. Regularly attend monthly Associate Board meetings


Associate Board members have the opportunity to gain valuable skills in event planning, fundraising, and public health advocacy. The board is also an excellent opportunity to make connections with like-minded individuals committed to maternal and child health.
