Advisors

Our advisors work as our staff's mentors. They do not have any fiscal responsibility of the organization nor do they participate in the daily operations of JA Living Legacy. Each advisor has a number of years as a professional within his or her respective field. They work with the board of directors and staff to guide JA Living Legacy's mission.
