EDGE Youth Leadership (formerly NCYLS)
November 27, 2010
I began with NCYLS before it became in independent seminar. I've served almost every role and can truly say that NCYLS is my life. I have given countless hours and much of my income to support this organization because I believe so strongly in the great work that we do. My whole perspective changed when I went through a similar seminar (HOBY) in NY 20 years ago and it is my personal goal to help create that kind of inspirational change in as many students as possible. Each year, I get to watch the transformation of students into incredibly outstanding leaders and it is what keeps me going. Every staff member is a volunteer and I know they feel the same way I do. Creating confident, capable, empowered leaders who want to make a difference in someone else's life is what they love to do with NCYLS.
