Board Governance

Glendale Healthy Kids is proud to model their board governance after the Annenberg Foundation’s Alchemy. 

Alchemy’s mission is to inspire nonprofit organizations to greatness through the development of the leaders among us. By ensuring that nonprofit executives and board members maximize their leadership capacity and teamwork, Alchemy transforms nonprofit organizations to a higher level of effectiveness. GHK’s leadership has gone through Alchemy training and the board’s governance reflects this model.
