Our supporters help
break the cycle of poverty

Northwest Associate Board

The NPH USA Northwest Associate Board exists to engage young people in the mission of NPH USA and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”), with the goal of increasing our visibility among this audience, engaging former and future international volunteers, and raising additional funds for NPH USA. The Associate Board also connects young people who care about combating global poverty and helping children in need together in a vibrant and fun community of peers.

Right: January 2020, Northwest Associate Board


The Associate Board is open to young people in their twenties and thirties who are passionate about the work of NPH USA and are willing to commit to spreading the word about and raising funds for NPH USA and NPH. Many of our current members are former international volunteers, godparents for children in an NPH home, or have family and other ties to NPH USA. For more information on membership, contact the NPH USA Northwest office.
