Help Local Youth Break the Cycle


We’re looking for a few talented and conscientious volunteer board members to lead and strengthen our programs for underserved youth and their families.  We are dedicated to creating opportunities for children to develop their unique skills and talents by awarding Pre-K scholarships.

The Megan Cajigas Education Foundation (MCEF) is a local non-profit focused on helping local families in the New Hanover – Brunswick – and – Pender County areas.

If you can contribute your time, thoughtfulness, and leadership once a month, and are interested in exploring this opportunity, contact us.

We’re especially looking for folks that believe in making a difference in our community one child at a time.
