TreeHouse is seeking a Board Member with Mental Health Expertise.
TreeHouse is on a mission is to end hopelessness among teens. Their vision is for every teen to be rooted in the living hope of Jesus—unleashing untold potential in communities everywhere.
Since 1984, TreeHouse has been spreading hope to teens, and their proven model is yielding positive results. Through safe, grace-based environments, teens build healthy relationships, better coping skills and a sense of purpose rooted in the living hope of Jesus.
TreeHouse serves teens through one-to-one mentoring, peer support groups, family mediation, educational support, and opportunities for community service and engagement. TreeHouse programs create a safe place for teens to belong and an atmosphere of unconditional love and acceptance. Their programs are built on proven models of effectiveness with grace at the core. At TreeHouse, teens know they’ll be loved, accepted, and supported no matter what.
In addition to core programs, the board and staff of TreeHouse have embarked on an ambitious growth plan called the TreeHouse Partner Network (TPN). With hopelessness being experienced by more teens than ever before, now is the time to grow the TreeHouse model nationwide. The TPN will be key to helping reach their goal of establishing 180 TreeHouse sites by 2025 with 600 schools impacted.
The TreeHouse Partner Network growth plan is aggressive. Their goal is to substantially grow our network in order to serve 10,000 teens by 2025. As the TreeHouse Partner Network expands nationally, all new sites will receive consistent training, resources, and curriculum so that each teen experiences the same support and love, no matter which TreeHouse they attend.
TreeHouse seeks a board member who will be fully engaged and is capable of collaborating with the board to guide the national expansion plan. The ideal TreeHouse board member will have executive/leadership level experience, a passion for teens experiencing hopelessness, knowledge of and/or experience working with mental health with teens and families, experience supporting mental health and wellness in youth, and knowledge of today’s mental health landscape and current trends.
