Review for EDGE Youth Leadership (formerly NCYLS), San Leandro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I originally came to NCYLS as a volunteer in 2004. After being exposed to some of the most intelligent, heartfelt, inspirational, and passionate people (high schoolers and adults alike) I have ever met, I was inspired to quit my finance job and commit to a year of service at an after-school program in San Francisco. I have come back to NCYLS each year since because each year I am able to learn and grow in ways that I otherwise never would. If the experience is this incredible for me, I can only imagine how much of an impact it has on the youths.

Review for EDGE Youth Leadership (formerly NCYLS), San Leandro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I consider myself to be extraordinarily lucky to be a part of NCYLS. I have been involved in the organization since 2004, and each year I grow in ways that I had never imagined.

At the annual seminar, I have had the opportunity to meet some of the most incredible leaders from all over Northern California. They challenge me to think deeply about who I am and what it is that drives me. Through NCYLS, I have a stronger sense of self and a stronger sense of purpose. NCYLS has helped to shape the person I am today.
