Stoneman serves as chairman of the board of directors of Youth Action Program and Homes in East Harlem, the original YouthBuild program. She was the founding co-chair of the Campaign for Youth, designed to improve policies affecting low-income youth in the United States. She served as co-chair for the first two years of the Ford Foundation’s Leaders for a Changing World selection committee and has been a member of the board of directors of Stand for Children.
