TeamConnor Junior Advisory Board

The Junior Advisory Board exists to promote TeamConnor and assist in raising awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. The Junior Advisory Board prepares students to become active and informed advocates of finding the cure for childhood cancer. The Junior Advisory Board provides students with effective forums for advocating new ideas and initiating programs within your networks (ie. school, church, clubs, friends, family).


The Junior Advisory Board supports the events and programs managed by TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation. The group demonstrates its commitment to the cause through fundraising and volunteer activities. Members of the Junior Advisory Board will use their influence to bring the battle to light.


Members of the Junior Advisory Board meet quarterly to strategize, plan and communicate with other Junior Board members. The Junior Advisory Board will be listed on the TCCF website with the first name and last name initial. Junior members will be dedicated to helping TeamConnor achieve its vision and mission by:

  • Volunteering at TCCF events
  • Spreading awareness of the need for childhood cancer research and funding
  • Creating individual and group fundraising efforts in their school, church or with peers

The Junior Board term lasts for one year with the option to continue to serve. Junior Advisory Board members are expected to attend all meetings, volunteer at events that benefit TeamConnor, spread awareness for childhood cancer, help fundraise, and inspire peers to get involved. Because funding is top priority, Junior Advisory Board members will also be expected to make a minimum contribution of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) at the start of his or her term.
