No wages... it's a volunteer position

Thanks and recognition offered regularly
Volunteers are valued and appreciated. We provide small tokens of appreciation throughout the year. More importantly, you gain recognition from your peers and a boost to your resume, as volunteering on a governance board is highly regarded. 

High stakes - it is child care, after all
The Board is accountable for the overall governance of RisingOaks - establishing policy, setting the strategic direction for RisingOaks' future and monitoring the overall performance of the Board, the CEO and the organization. So, lend your skills, expertise and voice to an important issue - one that affects all our children. Together, we can make a difference.

Opportunity for personal and professional growth
Develop leadership skills, gain experience in governance, strategic planning, risk management and much more. These skills are easily transferred into the workplace to enhance your career. Training is provided at our Annual Board Development Day.
