Board of Directors

The fund is governed by volunteers from the community who serve as members of the Board of Directors. In addition, another group of individuals serve as Advisors to the Board of Directors.

The leadership of the organization is responsible for ensuring that all proceeds from the Annual Chicken Barbecue and other donations are awarded to deserving young adults. 

The Board of Directors and Advisors meet monthly at the San Luis Coastal Unified School District, Room B-3.
