Can a 16 Year Old Serve as a Director of a Non Profit Corporation?
Non profit corporations are sometimes conceived by young adults under the age of 18. Although directors of a non profit corporation are generally required to be at least 18 years of age, under certain circumstances, a person who is between the ages of 16 and 18 years of age may serve as a director of a non profit corporation. In order to permit the non profit corporation to have a director between 16 and 18 years of age, the Certificate of Incorporation must be carefully drafted in order to take advantage of the legal provision that may permit such under age person to serve as a director.
