With over 20 years of leadership experience, Jaime Holland has been a Board Member since 2017. As of June 2021, Jaime was elected as Boys Town South Florida's Board Chair. We had a chance to talk with Jamie and ask him about his experiences:
Why did you become involved with Boys Town South Florida?“When my children reached a certain age, I decided to use my free time to serve for a nonprofit organization. Upon researching, I found that Boys Town was aligned with my passion of helping kids in the community and at schools. I believe in helping children and families by giving them a fighting chance to have a better life that they would not otherwise have if it were not for the support of Boys Town."
What is your favorite memory so far about your experiences with Boys Town?“My favorite memory is being involved in the Thanksgiving meal event. Having the opportunity to share time with my family and, together, putting meals together and delivering those meals to the families in need is a very charitable and happy experience."
What is your favorite program/service that Boys Town South Florida offers and why?“In-Home Family Services is my favorite program. I am a strong believer that we are formed by our environment. As a young person, the environment you are exposed to the most is the family environment. In-Home Family Services provides the resources needed to have a strong home environment, providing children with a strong foundation."
