Target demographics: All high school sophomores, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status. Because we are a free seminar, in a time of budget cuts, schools can turn to use for excellent leadership development without worrying about cost.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 150 students

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help various phases of student recruitment, program curriculum development and post-seminar leadership development. i.e. make phone calls, school visits, stuff fundraising and recruitment appeals, etc.

Geographic areas served: Northern California

Programs: an annual leadership seminar each spring or summer that kicks off a new, yearlong mentoring program to help students discover what they are passionate about, create an action plan and effect positive change in their schools and communities.

Mission:
Our mission is to seek out outstanding young leaders and help them develop their leadership potential, as well as encouraging them to volunteer to make an impact on their community.
Results:
EDGE Youth Leadership has grown every year for the last four years to serve an average of 150 students a year.

Through a survey conducted at the start and end of the seminar, students demonstrate a 20% average increase in confidence in public speaking, ability to make a difference through volunteering, interest in service, and confidence in their own leadership skills.

Participants have also demonstrated that EDGE has a lasting impact on their desire to volunteer. In a long-term survey, students indicated that EDGE was the second highest influence of their motivation to volunteer.
