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, plan and produce fund raising events, scout locations for activities, and help raise funds 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.
