THE STORY:

If anyone knows me, they know I LOVE my community and have dedicated my life to giving back. I am raising money to support an organization that is near and dear to my heart, the Youth to Leaders Leadership Institute throughthe Smiley Institute and I hope you will join me!

The Youth to Leaders Leadership Institute is a professional development program designed to help young leaders think critically for themselves about who they are as an individual and what issues they care about as a leader in the world.  Their objective is to produce more inspired, motivated and aware leaders who are now even more confident to pursue their personal and community service goals.

Each year students, ages 13-18, are invited to apply to attend this five-day conference held on a college campus. Between 200 and 250 students are accepted for participation along with adult allies who serve as chaperones. The majority of the Institute participants are moderate to low-income from urban and suburban communities nationwide. Each year 20-25 states are represented.

To read about all of their accomplishments, please visit them here: http://www.youthtoleaders.org/accomplishments.html

I was first introduced to this program around 2009 and I can honestly say that out of most non-profits I have dealt with (and I have dealt with a lot) that spending a week at this summer institute was nothing short of amazing!

They truly are fulfilling their mission to enlighten, encourage and empower youth by providing leadership training that will promote and enhance the quality of life for themselves, their communities and our world.

 

The best part is that all donation will be matched by the Perlman Foundation!
