Boston, MA – Silver Lining Mentoring (SLM), a non-profit whose mission is to empower youth in foster care to thrive through committed mentoring relationships and the development of essential life skills, is excited to announce that Larry Wallach has joined its Board of Directors. Larry is a family law attorney with an extensive history working with non-profits focused on improving children’s lives. Larry currently serves on the Board of Social Venture Partners (SVP) Boston, where he has volunteered in many capacities since joining in 2004
Larry first encountered SLM following SVP’s investment in and capacity building partnership with SLM in 2014 and was immediately impressed with SLM’s mission, leadership, and program. Soon thereafter, Larry became an SLM Mentor himself and is still a mentor for Brenden two years later. Larry is looking forward to supporting Silver Lining Mentoring in a larger capacity as an SLM Board member.
“I am excited to help with SLM’s fundraising and expansion plans. As Chair of the SLM Development Committee, I am committed to raising SLM’s profile and strengthening its revenue streams. I want to inspire others to become mentors and experience SLM’s powerful approach to enriching the lives of youth in and recently out of foster care. I deeply believe in the SLM program model and want to see its benefits made available to children and youth throughout Boston and beyond.”
