The DSAJ Young Professionals Board

The DSAJ is pleased to introduce our Young Professionals Board (YPB). The YPB is a young professional’s group dedicated to supporting the mission of the Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville through fundraising and volunteer efforts. The YPB members serve in a leadership capacity to organize annual fundraising events, such as this year’s first annual Illuminate the Night, as well as to spread awareness through social networking and volunteer opportunities in the community. The YPB has taken on a new project, “Jars of Joy,” where the group will raise money to provide small gifts giving comfort and happiness to individuals with Down syndrome (and their families) who are in the hospital for extended periods of time.
