Young Professional Board

The Young Professional Board strives to further the mission of LifeBridge Partnership by raising awareness of our programs in the community, and by planning key fundraisers to benefit the organization. Founded in May 2013, the board consists of a team of emerging professionals from across the St. Louis and St. Charles areas. The group organizes programs for LifeBridge youth and adult participants and conducts fundraisers several times a year. If you know of someone who might be interested in joining the Young Professional Board or to learn more about the board, please send an email to ypb@lifebridgestl.org or contact Patrick Martchink at the LifeBridge office.
