TEAM

“Team change is our term for the dedicated volunteers who have taken on leadership roles in the foundation.”

 – Joshua Williams, President & Chief Change Maker

Jr. Advisory Board (JAB)

According to the National Alliance for Secondary Education and Transition, a quality youth leadership program has three components:

 

  1. Youth acquire the skills, behaviors, and attitudes that enable them to learn and grow in self-knowledge, social interaction, and physical and emotional health.
  2. Youth understand the relationship between their individual strengths and desires and their future goals, and have the skills to act on that understanding.
  3. Youth have the knowledge and skills needed to practice leadership and participate in community life.

Serving on the Junior Advisory Board fulfills all three of these requirements. By designing their own projects, youth acquire organizational skills and gain self-confidence from their success. They gain experience in numerous areas, including fundraising and public speaking. They also get the satisfaction of helping others. The leadership experience and confidence that they gained will help them in all aspects of their lives.

These youth serve as a “board of directors” for the organization, gaining leadership experience.

My name is Jordan Wong and I have been the Chair of the Junior Advisory Board (JAB) of Joshua’s Heart Foundation since 2016 and also a senior at Ransom Everglades School. I’ve been involved with the organization for four years, and I have loved every second of it. Through the many food distributions, fundraisers, and meetings I have attended and helped organize, not only have I had the privilege to help many people, but I have also had the opportunity to grow as a person and as a leader. Joshua’s Heart has taught me many things, such as; resilience, compassion and, most importantly, that anyone can make a difference. It is an honor to lead this great organization with Joshua, and I will do my best to carry out its mission of eliminating hunger and poverty.
