Leadership Council

Volunteer.
Raise Awareness.
Change Lives.

We are a group of talented and motivated individuals in the Greater Boston area dedicated to helping children, young adults and families live successfully. United by our shared commitment to the young people and families Youth Villages serves, the Leadership Council seeks to strengthen the Youth Villages community by engaging future philanthropic leaders from diverse personal and career backgrounds while fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all its members. As a group, we pride ourselves on creating impactful volunteering, networking and awareness building initiatives to further the Youth Villages mission.
