Family & Children's Agency is seeking referrals and young professionals interesting in serving on the newly formed Junior Board of Directors.

The Junior Board of Directors, co-chaired by board member Douglas Stern and friends of the agency, Kristin McClutchy and Victoria Whitehead, was created to increase awareness in the community, support and promote the agency's mission, provide advocacy, support visibility efforts, and support development efforts. Its members will help plan junior board events, volunteer, and support fundraising efforts.

"The Junior Board of Directors is growing and is spearheaded by three very committed co-chairs," said Robert F. Cashel, president and CEO of Family & Children's Agency. "This is an exciting opportunity to utilize the energy and motivation found among young professionals in Fairfield County."

The junior board kicked off its first initiative in December with a restaurant night at Strada 18 in South Norwalk and Boulevard 18 in New Canaan. The board is planning a larger-scale community event, which will take place in the fall.
