Palos Heights, IL, May 10, 2017–foreverU, a non-profit organization aimed at reducing bullying, division, and student suffering, is introducing a Chicago Advisory Board this fall. The board will be comprised of 6-12 educators, school administrators, and mental health professionals. This team will serve as a think-tank to improve and tailor foreverU’s programs and overall impact. The team will have extended meeting times quarterly, as foreverU seeks to extend its programs to better serve youth and creatively disrupt the social emotional component of the public school system. foreverU Founder and Executive Director, Ryan Hesslau is looking forward to this addition coming in the fall of 2017:
"Along with re-building the infrastructure of foreverU this fiscal year, we have strengthened the foundation of who we are as a mission by adding this Partnership Program, they will have a chance to oversee the program and mission aspect of our organization, as well as building our Board of Directors this summer to oversee the organization as a whole in the coming years."
Ryan Hesslau envisions the Advisory Board as a way for the organization to gain more credibility behind it's programs and services that are provided to youth and school systems. The professionals would serve the key players in the development, evaluation, and implementation of our programming, and enable foreverU to take further steps in fulfilling its mission of reducing the occurrences of bullying, division, and student suffering.
