The Board of Directors of Operation Snowball serves as the governing body of Operation Snowball and is comprised of volunteer representatives from across Illinois. Board members have a vested interest in Operation Snowball, prevention, and youth leadership development, and possess the dedication and skills to benefit the functioning of the overall Board. Board members serve by representing OS Chapters by Districts (see map) as a liaison to OS Inc. by communicating and sometimes visiting a Chapter to assist in training, presentations, and resource development.
Youth Advocates are also an important part of the Board. Youth Advocates represent the youth point-of-view, attend quarterly board meetings and also take part in committee work. Youth advocates also contribute articles for the newsletter and social media. Youth advocates are expected to demonstrate the drug and alcohol-free lifestyle of Operation Snowball.
