YLS BY REALIZE
The Young Leaders Society Cohort by REALIZE Board Training Program is an initiative to increase the involvement of young professionals on nonprofit governing boards.
Participants expand their skill set, grow their networks and make the community a better place through a series of board trainings tailored specifically for young professionals.
Graduates will be provided connections to nonprofits and recognized throughout the El Paso community for their commitment to becoming responsible and successful local leaders.
YLS X REALIZE
Spring - Fall 2021
RISE and the Young Leaders Society have teamed up on a new virtual speaker series, Community Matters, to host special conversations allowing you to be informed, current and connected to our community.
Family Fun Registry
In response to COVID-19, YLS and sister donor network, RISE, joined forces to host donation. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, members supported nonprofit emergency shelters by collecting activities and in-home educational supplies to keep the minds of participants sharp. Items included puzzles, books, board games and more.
