Summit H.S. Students Serve on Overlook Foundation Junior Board

July 29, 2014 at 8:38 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Student representatives from Summit High School, as well as seven other area high schools, recently completed piloting a Junior Board program with the Overlook Foundation, which culminated in their awarding of a $2,000 grant to the HealthStart program at Overlook Medical Center. 

Max Block and Estefany Nunez represented Summit High School in the pilot program, which also included two students each, mainly juniors, from Governor Livingston High School, Kent Place School, Newark Academy, New Providence High School, Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child, The Pingry School, and Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School.

Set for a full-year rollout this fall, the Overlook Foundation Junior Board program was designed to expose local teens to the operation of a hospital foundation as the fund-raising arm of a nonprofit regional medical center.  Students interacted with hospital personnel and members of the foundation staff, enabling them to better understand the synergy necessary to cultivate new donors and facilitate relationships with existing donors. 

“As our young people move on to college and, ultimately, a career, we hope to broaden their educational experience to include civic responsibility,” explains Ann Oliva, executive director of the Overlook Foundation.  “By exposing them to a culture of philanthropy and involving them in the process, we anticipate that many will assume leadership roles as adults, giving of their time and talents to better the communities in which they live and work.”
