Junior Board of Directors

The Junior Board of Directors consists of up to 35 members who are young professionals in the Birmingham area. Members host several annual fundraisers and serve as ambassadors for Smile-A-Mile within the community. Applications are accepted year-round and will be reviewed for consideration on a rolling basis in June and November. We ask that each new member make a 3-year commitment with an optional fourth year if mutually agreed upon.

To apply, please complete our online SAM Jr. Board Application and submit to katie@smileamile.com.
