2024 Board of Directors

Wisconsin Youth Company exists so that children thrive outside the school day. This means all youth in our community are welcome to participate in our programs, and those that do are given the opportunity to reach their full potential in a safe, welcoming environment.

As the Board of Directors for Wisconsin Youth Company, we have adopted the following principles to guide the organization’s work:

Wisconsin Youth Company exists so that the children of south central Wisconsin thrive outside the school day at a level that justifies the resources invested.

  • Children will have a sense of belonging through supportive relationships with peers and adults.
  • Children will value themselves and explore personal interests.
  • Children will develop life skills consistent with their abilities.
  • Wisconsin Youth Company’s southwest Madison neighborhood will grow in community capacity.

We, the Board of Directors, reaffirm our and Wisconsin Youth Company’s commitment to providing an atmosphere that values diversity, respects everyone, and ensures all members of our community are welcome and safe while participating in our programs and visiting our facilities. Only by doing this can we achieve our ultimate goal that all children in our community thrive.
