Board Membership

Board Service

Guiding Our Work

Columbus Early Learning Centers Board members set the direction of our organization and act as ambassadors of our mission to the community. Using their time, talent and treasure, Board members support the work of the staff and our programs and services for children and families.

If you have an interest in making a difference in the lives of young children and their families, board service may be right for you.

“I first connected with CELC as a volunteer; later I organized a project at my workplace to benefit the children. When I was contacted about the opportunity to serve on the Board, I thought, ‘What an honor, how exciting and what a great opportunity!’ I am excited for the next steps with CELC.”

-John, CELC Board Member
