Associate Board

KEEN New York’s Associate Board is a dynamic group of young professionals dedicated to volunteering their time, talents, and energy to create a broader awareness of our organization, scout locations for activities, and plan and produce fundraising events for KEEN New York. 

Associate Board members have the unique opportunity to serve as advocates for KEEN’s mission to empower youth with disabilities by providing free, non-competitive one-to-one programs of exercise, fitness and fun, led by volunteer coaches.

The KEEN New York Associate Board strives to:

  • Heighten awareness about children with disabilities and the fight against obesity
  • Foster a network of similarly passionate and engaged young professionals
  • Increase the volunteer base amongst young professionals
  • Strategically address the fundraising needs of KEEN New York
