ADVISORY BOARD

The Role of CSU5 ReLAY Institute Advisory Board

The CSU5 ReLAY Institute Advisory Board comprises a group of regional executive leaders whose roles provide different essential perspectives on the services needed by opportunity youth in the Greater Los Angeles basin and the strategies used to develop, refine and deliver those services within and across community and organizational lines. These multiple executive perspectives give a very important broader, more comprehensive and interconnected view on the larger arena of regional efforts to serve opportunity youth today and tomorrow. The ReLAY Institute Advisory Board supports the purpose of the ReLAY Institute which is to facilitate, inform and support the integration of those service providers to create greater synergy, collaboration and the development of forefront models to best achieve their aspirational goals for reconnecting disconnected youth to the advantage of all.

As the ReLAY Institute moves forward, the Advisory Board will be given periodic updates on the ReLAY Institute’s path forward. In turn, members of the Advisory Board will provide observations, ideas and suggestions that come from their uniquely broad and forward focused perspectives to those charged with making the decisions about what is next for the ReLAY Institute.
