Ounce Affiliates Board

The Ounce Affiliates Board works to advance the Ounce of Prevention Fund mission by engaging citizens in support of early childhood education. Members introduce the Ounce to new champions and support the children served in our programs through fundraising and volunteer opportunities.

Members include a growing number of young professionals, business people, educators, parents and entrepreneurs who are committed to supporting early learning programs that help all children reach their potential to succeed in school and in life.

Get Involved

The OAB has an upcoming “Meet and Greet” scheduled on Tuesday, February 13, 5:30–6:30pm at the Ounce offices located at 33 West Monroe Street, 24 floor. Please RSVP to affiliatesboard@theounce.org if you are interested in attending a happy hour with several OAB members to learn more about getting involved with the OAB and hear about their experience on the board.

The Ounce Affiliates Board has activities for everyone! Past events include Throwback Thursday with the Ounce, early childhood education discussions, advocacy trainings and volunteer opportunities at Educare Chicago, the Ounce model early childhood school on Chicago’s South Side.
