Generation G Youth Board
WHO WE ARE
The Generation G Youth Advisory Board is made up of a group of volunteer teens who are passionate about spreading the word of GiGi’s Playhouse Raleigh and helping to show that we are all #morealikethandifferent. Our goals are to:
- Build Awareness
- Serve as Program Volunteers
- Support Fundraising
Board Structure: The Youth board is led by a group of Teen Officers and Adult Advisors who facilitate activities throughout the school year. The group meets twice a month, typically the 2nd and 4th Sundays.
HOW WE SUPPORT GIGI’S PLAYHOUSE RALEIGH
Awareness: With board members from all over the Triangle area, we are able to connect with a larger community through our outreach endeavors. We hold community events such as a Bingo Nights, Car Wash fundraisers, and Community Resource Fairs..
Volunteering: Youth Board members average over 300 hours of service at The Playhouse annually. In addition to the standard expectations for volunteers, we handle more responsibility as co-leaders of certain programs and consistent volunteers for many of the Playhouse programs and Events. We have also hosted events such as a Fall Fest, Family Fun, Bingo Night, and more. Each member of the GenerationG Youth Board volunteers for at least 30 hours a year!
Fundraising: Each year we organize fundraising events to help support the Playhouse and the ability to provide free programming to its participants. We have had benefit nights at restuarants, car washes, sold GiGi's masks and much more.
“I have been a part of GiGi’s Playhouse Raleigh for 5 years now and what I love most about it is the feeling of community right when you walk through the doors. Every person that comes into GiGi’s feels loved the entire time they are there and I was fascinated by it, so I decided to join Gen G youth board a year ago to see what it was like behind the scenes. Gen G is so special because it is a whole board just for teens to help spread the word about GiGi’s and get involved leading and participating in programs. Every program I attend I see someone do what they thought they were never able to do, with a smile on their face at the end saying “I did it.” That is something special that will always leave a mark on you.” -Wilson Furr, President
