The Resource Center for Parents and Children (RCPC) is looking for dedicated individuals interested in serving on their Board of Directors.

The mission of RCPC is to create a culture that values parenting and keeping children safe through education, respect, advocacy and strengthening families.

RCPC is an organization with cross-goal strategies, mission driven planning and budgeting processes, clean annual audits and a strong management team.

Founded in 1973, the Resource Center for Parents and Children is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. For over 30 years we have remained steadfastly committed to our mission of prevention. We are known in Fairbanks and the Interior for our longevity and the integrity of our programs and service provision.

The members of the board of directors serve on one of five standing committees:

  • Executive Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Board/ Staff Development Committee
  • Advocacy Committee
  • Planning Committee

These committees oversee the various functions of the agency and work towards accomplishing the objectives defined in the strategic plan.

The board of directors plays a critical role in the Resource Center for Parents and Children. Members of the board are involved in program and policy oversight, financial management, and fundraising. I encourage you to discuss board activities with any current board member.

If you are interested in joining our board, please fill out and submit this form.

If you have any questions about serving on the board or about RCPC, please don’t hesitate to call Scooter Welch at (907) 456-9007 or email Steve Meckel, Board Chair, at
