Athens Chapter Junior Board

The Athens Area Watson-Brown Foundation Junior Board of Trustees is made up of some of the best and brightest high school students in fourteen county area of Northeast Georgia. In the months leading up to the grant season, the board members learn about historic preservation and philanthropy. In the spring months, the members attend site visits and ultimately are responsible for deciding which projects will receive a share of $33,000 that year. The Junior Board members are able to take these real world experiences into future careers in non-profits or serving on non-profit boards.
