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.
