Teen Advisory Boards

Our House Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is  an opportunity for promising, service oriented students to learn about philanthropy and non-profit management. TAB members act as ambassadors to raise awareness and interest in RMHC-CNI throughout their school communities.

Each of our five Ronald McDonald Houses and the Ronald McDonald House Family Room at Edward Hospital have the TAB program.

To join the TAB, you must be over 16 years old, a Junior or Senior in high school, and have consent from a parent or guardian.

TAB participants are expected to attend monthly meetings. They will also attend and help with fundraising events at the House.
