1986. Top Gun ruled the box office and Dionne Warwick and Friends “That’s What Friends are For” dominated the airwaves.
In New Orleans, a group of young professionals from three major political campaigns joined together to create a nonpartisan nonprofit that would leave a big mark on the Crescent City. Their first challenge? Raising $500,000 to install lights on the Mississippi River Bridge, now known as the Crescent City Connection.
For over three decades, young professionals have sought out YLC. They create and manage community projects that improve the quality of living. They build relationships with community leaders, allowing them to impart change in all corners of the Greater New Orleans region. And through it all, they’re proud to call New Orleans home.
