Quick Exit

The network provides young leaders, including college students and people early in their careers, with opportunities to connect professionally and socially, develop a culture of philanthropy, and ultimately strengthen their relationship with our organization so that they may serve as future committee and Board members and in other leadership capacities.


Meetings: Meetings include an awareness and education component focusing on domestic and dating violence, updates about new initiatives at Casa Myrna, and time to socialize with one another. Meetings take place at our main office, one of our residential programs, or at a venue hosted by a young leader or Board member. We are also scheduling a professional development workshop so that network members can improve their skills such as public speaking and resume building.

Awareness: Network members have the opportunity to learn more about Casa Myrna and the issues of domestic and dating violence through informational/Domestic Violence 101 trainings, visits to our main office and residential programs, and ongoing updates about our work.

Events: Network members play a key role in helping us promote and drive attendance at Casa Myrna events, including the annual Make It Your Business Reception and Community of Conscience Breakfast. They also help increase our social media base. In addition to attending these events, members may also participate in Team Casa Myrna, plan and host fundraising and awareness events, and coordinate workshops and trainings by Casa Myrna staff for their colleagues. Members may take advantage of discounted ticket prices for young professionals and students for our signature events.

Volunteerism: Network members participate in individual or group volunteer projects at Casa Myrna to build a sense of community, learn more about our programs and survivors, and provide needed assistance to our main programs.
