Linda Whitlock

Linda Whitlock
Founding Board Member, Youth Villages Massachusetts

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Youth Villages in Massachusetts, we have the honor of recognizing one of our founding Boston board members, Linda Whitlock. Linda was influential in building the strong board we have in place today and brought her rich experience in non-profit management to our Massachusetts operation. Linda has won widespread respect for her effective management, board leadership and public service – she is a treasure to our community. For a decade, Linda brought inspired leadership to the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, which enables more than 14,000 children and teens from low-income neighborhoods in Greater Boston to become responsible citizens and leaders – a core value of Youth Villages’ work.
