The Youth Leadership Committee is a youth leadership opportunity in Southern Florida. Committee members of the group attend monthly meetings, elect officers and work together on fundraising projects to help make wishes come true. Through this committee, students learn valuable skills such as leadership, organization, budgeting and planning, that will be helpful in college, at work and beyond. Started in 2014, the YLC raised more than $55,000 to grant 11 more wishes! Our goal is to grow this program into a network of youth across Southern Florida that will ensure that every eligible child’s wish is granted.
