BENEFITING: Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation, Inc.
In 2008 Chelsea was nominated by Blue Hills Regional Voc Tech High School in Canton, Massachusetts to attend the MYL Foundation's MassSTAR Conference. For several years she volunteered her time on operations and continued staying involved in the MYL Foundation. In 2013 Chelsea began her three year adventure of serving on the Conference Planning committee as the Director of Staff and continues this year as a Conference Co-Director.
In 2014 Chelsea pulled Kasey on board to join the MYL foundation family. Kasey is going to be volunteering for the third year as the conference photographer. She enjoys capturing the life-changing moments the three day conference has on it's delegrates and staff. Together, Chelsea and Kasey credit the MYL Foundation for endless hours of inspiration, laughter and citizenship.
If it werent for the foundation, we truly dont know where we would be today. It is a rarity to find an organization that you have felt supported by from as early as a sophomore in high school through your professional life. Although Kasey might not have been an alumni, she was still welcomed with open arms. I hope that this organization will continue to thrive and instill change in Massachusetts' youth and communities. However, we need your support. As a 501(c) non-profit organization your donation is tax deductable and will help to change the lives of many students similar to ourselves! PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TODAY!
