Get involved now! Volunteer with a YLC Project.

Membership is open to all individuals, and so is volunteering. Our mission is to build leadership through service, focusing on initiatives that improve the quality of life in the Greater New Orleans area. We are always looking for new faces to help make an impact in this city we are proud to call home. Our projects focus on important issues in the areas of arts and culture, beautification, youth enrichment and education, and economic development. Get involved with an existing YLC project or start a new one yourself.
