Our goal is to establish a volunteer Board of Directors that is dedicated to working towards the mission and vision of SEF.  The members of Advisory are individuals who bring specific knowledge to help us be effective. 

We continuously seek to have volunteers who represent each school as well as diversity in our demographics. Additionally, our structure includes three committees: fundraising, grants, and communication.  

To facilitate the grant process and flow of information we have a representative from each school/organization matched with a liaison from SEF. 

If you would like to learn more about who is involved, please read our bios. 

If you are interested in volunteering for SEF, please contact us.
