One of the best leadership development opportunities in the YLC is to actually help run the organization by serving on one of the YLC's standing committees.

Development Committee

The Development Committee helps plan and coordinate fundraising events for the organization, specifically the Role Model Gala. Interested in joining this committee? Email VP of Development Lauren Michel at

Communications Committee

The Communications Committee promotes the organization to its members, the corporate community and the general public in concert with the goals of the board and office. Interested in joining this committee? Email VP of Communications Diana Matteo Hernandez at

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee plans monthly general membership meetings, new member orientations (called JumpStarts), and all other member social and professional development events. The committee meets each month to plan events and discuss new ways to engage and recruit YLC members. Interested in joining this committee? Email VP of Membership Katherine Hammer at

Projects Committee

The Projects Committee serves as a connection between the YLC staff and its volunteer-led community service projects. The committee meets regularly to plan YLC projects-centric events throughout the year and regularly partners with the Membership and Communications committees. Interested in joining this committee?
