Junior Board

The United Ability Junior Board is devised of young professionals (age 25-35 years old) in the Birmingham area who wish to further the mission of United Ability. The goals of the Junior Board are to create awareness of United Ability’s mission and programs, to provide and attract resources, to develop future leadership and to provide a positive and enjoyable opportunity for young adults to meet and interact in an environment that creates social benefit.

The Junior Board hosts two annual fundraisers that benefit United Ability. Driving After Dark, a night golf tournament, held in May, and Vino & Van Gogh, a wine and art show, held in August. The Junior Board accepts new members in the fall of each year, and members serve three year terms.

If you are interested in joining the United Ability Junior Board, please contact Lee Thrash at lthrash@unitedability.org or Alison Berman at aberman@unitedability.org.
