A letter from our Founder/Executive Director

As a dedicated parent, I founded Youth Civic Leaders after being profoundly inspired by my children’s active participation in civic engagement.  After realizing the immense potential that young people have in shaping their communities it ignited my passion to empower young leaders; marking the start of a movement where the voices and efforts of the youth are not just heard, but are instrumental in driving change. Their inspiration led me to establish an organization dedicated to empowering young individuals in civic leadership.
