Both of these outstanding leaders will serve for a minimum of three years to provide governance, financial oversight, and strategic vision for YOTO. Please help us welcome the newest members of YOTO’s governing body:

Eric Dupree is a YOTO graduate from Santa Rita High School and is a 20-year employee of Sysco Foods. “I look forward to giving back to an organization that that helped me so much as a teen parent. I’m proud to be a new member of the board!”

Cori Rodriguez is a native Tucsonan who works at Rain Bird and is an active volunteer with El Rio Vecinos, TFCU, and her church. “Being engaged in the community is an important value for me. I’m excited to join Youth On Their Own and support our students working to graduate high school.”

YOTO’s board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future. They adopt sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, and they ensure that YOTO has adequate resources to advance its mission. Equally important, board members also serve as representatives and advocates for YOTO in the community.
