Juleps in June was co-hosted by YLC project, One Book One New Orleans. One hundred days of One Book One New Orleans kicks off on September 8. Keep up with all of the volunteer opportunities OBONO has to offer on the YLC calendar! Thank you all for your support in making the 29th annual YLC Role Model Awards Gala on September 12 such a success! Congratulations to our 25 inspiring role models.

The Young Leadership Council (YLC) is a non-profit, non-partisan
civic organization created to develop leadership through community projects.

Through volunteer-created community projects, the YLC recruits and retains young professionals to New Orleans and has a
positive impact on the quality of life in the region. The oldest, independent YPO (young professionals' organization) in the country,
the YLC has raised more than $25 million to support community projects in and around the New Orleans area since 1986.
