Join Our Board

JOIN OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND HELP IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN CENTRAL HARLEM!!!

Serve as a volunteer on our Board of Directors and assist in leading and managing the overall operations of a small Harlem nonprofit, nonsectarian organization.

The Rev. Linnette C. Williamson Memorial Park Association, Inc., is one of the few inner-city, urban land trusts in New York City and the United States. We provide services to children and families in Central Harlem as a natural outgrowth of our three vest-pocket parks and gardens, and one open-space children’s playground on West 128th and 129th Streets between 5th and Lenox Avenues.

Here’s how you can improve the quality of life for Harlem families:

FUNDRAISING 

Utilize your grant writing and/or research skills; or learn to solicit grants from foundations and corporations in efforts to fulfill our mission.

STRATEGIC PLANNING AND OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT

Share in the year-round planning, governance and management of our entire organization, including our four public spaces and our annual Summer Youth Enrichment Program operated in partnership with The Bank Street College of Education.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Engage in purposeful interaction with community leaders, and with federal, state and city public officials in efforts to accomplish our goals and objectives.

The commitment: 
Board of Directors’ meetings occur one evening per month. Other meetings, whether of the Board or special committees, may take place periodically as needed. All leadership, operations management and community involvement activities are a collective board membership effort and involve independent/group dedication in our spare time.

The rewards: 
Your efforts enrich the lives of children, families and all residents in Central Harlem. Learn new skills and brainstorm new ideas as we work, together, to solve challenging issues.

How to Apply:
We strive to elect to the Board people representing diverse racial, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. To request further information about The Rev. Linnette C.
