BOARD OF ADVISORS

The We Cancerve board of advisors is made up of youth – ages 8 through 18 – with strengths in various leadership qualities who provide fresh ideas and unique perspectives to helping us achieve our mission.  Youth work together to provide services within the We Cancerve Movement’s mission areas. The advisors provide advice and support to the founder and chairwoman of the board.  Advisors are appointed by the founder for a 12-month term. Advisors may be reappointed. 

The advisors meet quarterly in a formal business meeting led by the founder to discuss upcoming projects and opportunities that best fit We Cancerve’s missions. During each meeting, advisors are able to present new program ideas to the body for review and approval. Parents are supporters and assistants to the advisors are not board members. While their input and support are valued, the advisors are the creative visionaries that have contributed significantly to We Cancerve's success to date.  

 

Each member of the board of advisors is expected to:

  

  • Actively participation in quarterly board of advisor meetings;

  • Understand and support We Cancerve’s mission, structure, programs and areas of interests;

  • Actively support of We Cancerve events and service projects;

  • Use courtesy, exercise patience and show respect in board meetings and at We Cancerve events and service projects;

  • Accept and support – without complaint or contrary behavior - the final decision of the board chair;

  • Adhere to high standards of moral and ethical conduct that signals association with an organization rooted in faith and designed to help others in need;

  • Accept that the chairwoman of the board of advisors/founder and business manager are the only official spokespeople for the We Cancerve Movement, unless otherwise requested by these individuals. While board members are encouraged to help promote the works of the movement and their role as board members, official statements (e.g., interviews, articles, other written materials including flyers) must be approved by the business manager.
