I would like to submit my consideration for a position on the Board of Directors at XYZ Inc. As a social worker with a Master's degree in psychology, I have long been an admirer of the work that you do with underprivileged children in the public school system. Your D.R.E.A.M project had a direct influence on the way I structured therapy sessions with nonverbal children under the age of five. I am so pleased to hear of an opening, and I'm excited to offer my skills in service of your mission.
Ten years ago, I was working toward becoming a trained psychologist. However, two years spent volunteering in the CARDV program showed me that I had a lot more to offer in social work, making a direct impact on children who could not afford therapy as I had been taught to practice it. I've found ways of structuring the hierarchy of needs to prioritize healing and health with children who have experienced trauma or neglect.
In the past three years, I have sat on the board of directors for ABC, DEF, and GHI. I have a lot of ideas about marketing and fundraising for your upcoming JKL event, and I believe there are ways of expanding your mission statement to bring in new faces. I look forward to discussing these ideas with you further.
Please let me know if you need any other information. Thank you for your consideration.
