The CYFS Department Advisory Board is a volunteer group of professionals in churches, community agencies, and camps that provide valuable encouragement and support to CYFS faculty and students. They meet on campus twice a year.
Board members serve as valuable contacts for students looking for practicum or internship sites, professional resources, or advice for advancing in the field.
