Founded in 2010, the One Million Degrees Associates Board is a diverse group of emerging leaders who believe in the transformative power of a community college degree.
The mission of the OMD Associates Board is to cultivate supporters and volunteers, to provide philanthropic support, and to increase awareness of the valuable work of One Million Degrees.
The Associates Board inaugural Back-to-School Bash was a smashing success! Learn more about event here.
