The Illinois Legal Aid Online Young Professionals Board (“YPB”) is an organized group of up-and-coming leaders who engage in networking, socializing, outreach and philanthropy in support of the organization’s mission to use technology in innovative ways to increase access to justice for lower-income Illinois residents.
The YPB’s goals are to:
1) increase awareness about Illinois Legal Aid Online and its services,
2) host opportunities for networking and fundraising, and
3) introduce the next generation of leaders to non-profit board membership and governance.
For more information or to join the YPB, please contact us.
