Calling all Montclair High School students! Do you have ideas on how to improve education and support the teachers and students at MHS? Would you like to make a lasting change at your school?
Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) a non-profit that raises funds for the Montclair Public Schools — will establish a Junior Board for the 2017 – 2018 school year and is currently accepting applications from MHS students interested in becoming philanthropists and change agents in their school community.
The MFEE Junior Board will be comprised of two to three MHS students from each grade level. Any student who is interested in improving his or her school community can apply!
The Junior Board will be given $2,500 and tasked with allocating those funds in grants awarded to MHS teachers and/or students who apply. As a Junior Board Member you will be a decision maker in the entire process.
Students will meet 5-7 times during the school year in person and will also be required to communicate online with their peers and project coordinators regarding Board work. Junior Board Members will be matched with a MFEE Board member, who will serve as a mentor through the process.
If interested, complete the MFEE Junior Board Member application and drop it in the MFEE mailbox in the main office or in the MFEE office on the first floor of the main building. You can also email applications to [email protected].
