Julie Michaels
Past President

It has been an honor to serve as MBA President in 2015 & 2016.  My passion to serve the community continues as I serve in the role of the Executive Director for My Next Big Adventure, Inc.  I am delighted to begin this journey.  My Next Big Adventure’s mission is to build up our youth by educating, encouraging, and empowering them with peer to peer mentoring.  Our program is unique, as we developed curriculum and resources available for peer to peer mentoring at our meetings.  We want to encourage our students to make a difference by building their self-esteem, developing leadership skills, creating positive friendships, making healthy life choices, and finding the value of giving back to our community.  This will have a tremendous impact on the people they become through high school and beyond.  Ultimately, this program will help to develop students to become positive leaders that will influence each other and our community.
