NFTY Ohio Valley is governed by a board of teen leaders who are elected by their peers that serve a one-year term. Regional board members play a critical role in all aspects of running the region including event planning and marketing, and mentoring teen leaders from our local youth communities. The regional board is mentored by a Regional Director of Youth Engagement who oversees all programs and administration. The leadership of NFTY-OV is always available to answer questions and provide useful resources. We are here to assist in the development and enhancement of local youth programs.
