Leadership

Plan International USA is governed by a board of directors.

The Board of Directors oversees an Executive Team responsible for running day-to-day business operations, including programs and policy, marketing, philanthropy, public engagement and advocacy, donor relations, finance and human resources. Alongside the board of directors and consistent with Plan’s youth-driven mission, Plan’s Youth Advisory Board provides input into decision-making while coordinating projects and campaigns related to Plan’s work.
