Introducing Learning Life’s New Board of Advisors

Learning Life is pleased to present our inaugural Board of Advisors!  

For most of our existence since founding in 2012, Learning Life has been a fiscally-sponsored program of a larger nonprofit called United Charitable. This has allowed Learning Life to quickly change and experiment to develop our three programs: the Family Diplomacy InitiativeInternational Mentoring Program, and Democracy Dinners. Now, in 2021, we are in the process of forming our own independent nonprofit, and expanding our volunteer base, programming and fundraising. 

The new Board of Advisors (BOA) will advise Learning Life in specific matters of their expertise, such as communications, fundraising, program design, monitoring and evaluation.  In addition, BOA members will help as they can in making connections that facilitate partnerships and collaborations to help Learning Life advance its mission.  “We are honored and excited to be working with such connected, caring, and experienced advisors, and look forward to working with the BOA to strengthen and expand our operations and programming,” said Paul Lachelier, Learning Life’s founder and director.

The inaugural BOA members’ photos are shown below.  Learn more about each of them at Learning Life’s staff page.  Interested in serving on Learning Life’s BOA, or know someone who might be?  Check out our call for board members and/or share this page with someone you know who may be interested.  We are currently especially, though not exclusively, interested in identifying (1) a retired ambassador, (2) business executives in relevant industries like diplomacy, internet communications, social media, and online education in metro Washington DC and beyond, (3) communications, marketing and fundraising specialists, and (4) an attorney specializing in nonprofit law.
