Engaging Youth in Leadership and Community Service

WE’RE BUILDING LEADERS

YR’s mission is to inspire and develop our community of youth to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and civic engagement. Since 1987 we’ve worked with over 149,850 students and funded more than 3,310 service projects in 6 counties. Our alumni give, serve, and lead in education, healthcare, business, law, nonprofits, tech and more, using the skills they learned through YR’s programs.

Last year our students served over 8,000 hours with more than 100 local organizations, and they planned 63 service projects with their peers. They opened their hearts to the needs in our community and put their hands to work making a difference.
