Why be a part of Code for fun’s Board of Directors?
Code for fun is a Respected Nonprofit
Becoming a member of Code for fun’s Board of Directors you are a part of a respected, dynamic, and well-connected team of executives in the Silicon Valley and Bay Area, passionate about education and computer science for youth.
A big responsibility of being on a board is raising awareness and funds for the organization. As an advocate for Code for fun, you will connect with tech executives, noted educators, and leaders in the field of youth development.
You will develop new skills, ideas, and be a part of opportunities, which will benefit your career, grow your network, and position you as a mentor in an area of your choosing.
Board Support and Appreciation
We are also a Board that appreciates the effort that goes into Board work. We strive to make our meetings efficient, and to provide Board materials to each Board member in advance of each meeting.
We utilize Best Practices for Non-nonprofits in how we work together as a Board team and individually as Board Members.
We bring the “fun” of Code for fun in everything we do.
Board members will participate in an important annual planning retreat to create and develop Code for fun’s strategic goals and initiatives. We realize how this time away from families and relationships can be hard so we invite the families and partners to join in the weekend. Board members appreciate the time to both work together, relax over dinner or around a pool, and to deepen the relationships and discussions with other Board members.
More than professional connections, we support our board developing long lasting relationships with each other and our key constituents.
Our fundraising events bring together the Silicon Valley tech world, bay areas educators and a cadre of diverse funders for events that are fun and enjoyable.
