Our Leadership

Board of Directors

Peaceful Paths is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are committed to the sustainability of the agency mission and the overall health of the agency.  Board members represent a diverse segment of the community and work to promote the work of the agency through awareness, fundraising, and advocacy.

Board membership openings are reviewed annually in March. Those interested in joining the board should contact JoAnn Wilkes at joann.wilkes@sfcollege.edu to apply for membership.
