The strategic function of a board is to provide the mission, vision, and goals for an organization. KKOOM is grateful to have eight Board of Directors who guide the decisions made for Korean Kids and Orphanage Outreach Mission. The Board of Directors play a unique role serving on a virtual board for a minimum of one year. To discuss fundraising efforts and how to continue improving ways to serve children in South Korea, they have monthly Board calls via Google Hangout and an annual in-person summer retreat.
All of our Board of Directors have something in common – a strong desire to give back to the Korean community. Their professional careers vary from education, law, speech therapy, and more. Half of KKOOM’s Board have spent at least one year living in South Korea as a Fulbright English Teacher or by serving in the United States Army.
This past year, KKOOM welcomed three new Board members. Laura is a Special Education Teacher in California and Kathy is a retired educator serving in previous roles as a teacher, principal, and district director. KKOOM’s youngest Board member, Liat, is currently a junior at Brandeis University and was the first summer intern to assist with Dream Camp planning this past summer. Thank you to KKOOM’s Board of Directors for your dedication in ensuring Korean children have a brighter future.
