We would also like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the incredible ways that YLC’s young professional leaders have given back to our community in 2018!
- YLC Recycles project leaders launched the Mardi Gras Recycling Initiative in partnership with Arc of Greater New Orleans, preventing 2,500 pounds of beads, 10,000 cans, and 3,000 plastic bottles from reaching our catch-basins and landfills.
- YLC Assists and Volunteers in the Arts project leaders mobilized more than 360 volunteers to donate 1,080 hours of support to 23 local nonprofit organizations.
- Power Ties volunteer mentors taught vital career awareness and readiness skills to 246 8th grade students from three New Orleans schools.
- Where ‘Ya Rack volunteers made our city more bicycle-friendly by installing 32 bike racks and two large bike corrals across the New Orleans region.
Through optimism, energy, and hard work, our volunteer leaders achieve extraordinary things. But they simply cannot do it alone! Your investment provides our young professionals with the skills, inspiration, and tools they need to tackle the toughest issues facing our community. With your help, we know that they’re up to the challenge!
