Nonprofit Corner

Did you know we are playing Match Maker?

Many of the community agencies with whom we partner seek Board Members with specific qualifications. Because our membership is filled with women of many different talents whom are all trained to serve as effective volunteers, the Junior League is a natural resource for Board Members. Through our Board Bank program, we match interested League members with community agencies seeking Board Members. Keep in mind:

• The JLW cannot guarantee a Board match, even if we identify a potential match. Ultimately, the agency makes the final decision on who sits on their Board.

• When a JLW member serves on a nonprofit Board, she does so as an individual, trained by the Junior League, not as a representative of the Junior League.

Please contact us for more information.

The Center for Cultural Interchange (CCI) is a Chicago based nonprofit organization that sponsors and places high school exchange students with volunteer host families in the United States for the academic semester or year. We are currently seeking host families for several 15-18 year old boys and girls from countries such as Germany, Belgium, Taiwan, Vietnam, Hungary, Poland, Colombia, Brazil, and China among many others.  CCI host families come in all shapes and sizes and represent the diversity of American culture. Our families are of varied economic, religious and racial backgrounds and include working parents, couples without children, singles and single parents, adoptive parents, empty-nesters, in addition to the traditional nuclear family. All host families complete an application and must clear a background check. More information about CCI can also be found on our website at www.cci-exchange.org.
