“I get to secretly live my dream of being a writer through a new generation of girls. I feel a great sense of achievement from being on the Board of this organization, knowing I am truly making a difference.” – Lisa Chai, Board Treasurer

From a veteran Board member to an intern on her first day in the office, everyone takes a stake in the community. Whether that’s crafting a writing workshop or throwing a benefit  party, volunteers and employees lend their leadership, along with their considerable talents, enthusiasm, and commitment to our mentees.
