Be a Leader
De Marillac Academy seeks individuals willing to dedicate their time and talent through membership on several different volunteer leadership committees and councils. In general, these committees or councils meet 4-5 times per year with some additional time, communication and work expected between meetings. Volunteer leadership opportunities include the following:
- The President’s Finance Council: The Finance Council provides skill, experience and perspective to ensure De Marillac Academy’s long-term financial sustainability and mission achievement by analyzing and assessing the financial policies, strategies and practices, and making recommendations to the President.
- The President’s Development Council: The Development Council provides time, talent and treasure to ensure De Marillac Academy’s long-term financial sustainability and mission achievement by expanding the institution’s donor base and increasing contribution size and income flow.
- The President’s Student and Graduate Success Council: The Student and Graduate Success Council enhances the impact of De Marillac Academy’s systems and structures that serve students and graduates, and provide ongoing monitoring, assessment, and recommendations to the President so that De Marillac may best realize its goal of providing a transformative holistic educational experience that liberates students to lead lives of choice, meaning, and purpose.
- De Marillac Academy Board of Trustees: The Board of Trustees at De Marillac Academy governs on behalf of the school’s sponsors, the De La Salle Christian Brothers and the Daughters of Charity. The Board’s purpose is to preserve and advance the mission of the school by developing broad directives through which the President/CEO works to meet determined goals.
If you are interested in serving on either of the President’s Councils, please contact Maribeth Hutson, Operations Manager at 415.552.5220 x402. The invitation to join the Board of Trustees usually, but not always, comes after a period of volunteer leadership or demonstrated commitment to the Mission of De Marillac Academy over a period of time.
