Project Youth OCBF’s Associate Board is a volunteer group of successful, socially conscious, and motivated young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, who support the mission of Project Youth.
The Associate Board provides support by building awareness in the community about the programs of Project Youth and raises funds by holding several fundraisers a year. Project Youth OCBF’s Associate Board introduces young professionals to the varied programs and works of the organization. Through volunteer activities, social events and networking opportunities, the Associate Board assists in the cultivation of the next generation of leaders committed to Project Youth and serving those in need in our community.
Associate Board 2020 President’s Message
Anthony Modarelli, III, Esq.
Opportunity: “a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something.” Many underprivileged youth have yet to encounter an opportunity and instead are faced with a set of circumstances that make it impossible to reach their goals. The efforts of the Project Youth OCBF Associate Board Members fill this void for those children and teenagers looking for that one opportunity to take a step toward realizing their dreams. I have never felt more proud to serve as a leader for a group of young professionals than I do as the President of the Project Youth OCBF Associate Board. The commitment of the Associate Board members to dedicating their time, energy, and resources to creating and opening opportunities for the youth in our community sends a message as to how important just one opportunity can be for a young individual.
Project Youth OCBF is in a transformative time with the growth of our organization’s programs and our embarkation into our Elevate Educate Empower Campaign. The goal of the Associate Board this year will be to increase awareness of our programs to the community at large, engage in the communication efforts of the Comprehensive Campaign, and to ignite attraction to young professionals to help us create opportunities through fundraising and volunteering. Since my involvement with Project Youth OCBF, I have seen tremendous progress in our outreach, and I am honored to lead the Associate Board in the fulfillment of our goals and the mission of Project Youth OCBF.
On behalf of the Associate Board and the thousands of youth whose lives have been forever changed by Project Youth OCBF, your continued generosity and support which help open up opportunities to the youth in our community is greatly appreciated.
Anthony Modarelli, III, Esq.
