we need board members
Our Executive and Leadership Boards are responsible for ensuring The Princess Project Los Angeles volunteer base lives our mission and sustains our values. Additionally, the job of the Board is to put strategy and planning in place to meet our annual goals and ensure TPPLA is a sustainable non-profit here in Los Angeles. Our application process is rigorous and requires an application, references and interviews for our leadership board. Executive Board positions require an application, a resume, references and interviews as part of our vetting process. Serving in a leadership role is a rewarding experience and an opportunity to connect with like-minded leaders as well as give back to the greater Los Angeles community. We would prefer applicants for a leadership (Committee Chair) role, to have served on a The Princess Project committee for at least one year. We would prefer for applicants for an executive role to have served on a The Princess Project committee for one year and have Committee Chair or leadership experience with another non-profit prior to applying. However, we will review each application on a person-by-person basis.
