Junior Board is a program where teams of students research the not-for-profit world in monthly meetings. Each team will choose an organization in the KC area to represent and will compete in April for grant money, presenting to a panel of local non -profit executives and philanthropists. SME is the first high school to offer the Junior Board program. Many distinguished universities around the country already are offering similar programs, as well as degrees in not-for-profit fields.
