What is a board member?

Thank you for exploring what it is to become a board member with First Tee – Virginia Peninsula. Board members are essential to the community and to our program!

“Together, we can serve humanity with our unique passions, gifts and abilities.” – Lailah Gifty Akita

Board members

  • are advocates for the program by providing positive support of the organization to the general public.
  • recommend actions or policies to staff and the governing board of the YMCA.
  • support the full achievement of First Tee – Virginia Peninsula vision through personal contributions and securing adequate funds for community inclusion in programming.

The time commitment varies, but it is generally about 2 hours a month.

The branch board is a highly regarded volunteer leadership opportunity in the community, it performs as a team, First Tee – Virginia Peninsula image is enhanced, and the annual campaign grows annually in funds and friends raised.
