Frequently asked questions

Dorill Initiative is a multidisciplinary 501(c)(3) arts organization committed to empowering youth to tell their stories and transform communities.

We train our youth to develop a unique voice through literary, visual and performing arts education.

Board members serve a two-year term.

Yes. Board members are encouraged to contribute financially to the organization. If you choose to contribute, it should be of personal significance.

As a member of the Dorill Initiative board of directors, you will help define policy and guide the nonprofit so that it stays true to its mission and achieves its goals effectively. You will be expected to attend and participate in quarterly board meetings. You may have additional responsibilities if asked to join committees or become active in certain areas. It is expected but not required, that you will occasionally participate in events as volunteer.

Under state law, board members are expected to use reasonable care when making decisions and taking actions (called “duty of care”). In addition, state law establishes a duty of loyalty on board members, which means that you must always act in the best interests of Dorill Initiative. In general, board members are not personally liable for their work on the board. You won’t face personal liability unless you act fraudulently or with gross negligence.
