In 2016, the Board of Directors established the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation Junior Board for the purpose of training the next generation of family philanthropists. Members of this group work with a Junior Board Mentor elected by the Board of Directors to learn about the rules of law and fiduciary responsibilities of a private family foundation.

Junior Board members are given opportunities to research, exercise procedural due diligence, and recommend grant funding to selected organizations at the annual Board of Directors meeting. All grants request recommendations are subject to Board of Directors review and approval for funding.
