Are you looking for a way to have a long-lasting impact on the Pittsburgh community? Hello Neighbor, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is looking for dedicated and engaged young professionals to join its Young Professionals Board.
The mission of Hello Neighbor’s Young Professionals Board is to leverage the skills, experiences, and networks of young professionals in Pittsburgh to carry out Hello Neighbor’s mission through four key initiatives: fundraising for the organization, identifying corporate partnerships and sponsorships, supporting Hello Neighbor’s core programs, and raising awareness in the community. Separate and distinct from the Governing Board of Directors, the Young Professionals Board has its own set of officers, committees, and annual initiatives.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until November 15 when finalists will be invited to an interview. For 2024, the young professionals board intends on adding 1-2 new members. Once selected, onboarding will begin in December and the term will begin January 1, 2024.
