Leadership From Within

The YouLead Global Youth Leadership Program’s goal is to connect, cultivate, inspire, and empower high school Juniors and Seniors throughout the DFW area to make a positive contribution to their communities and sphere of influence. The communities these young leaders impact include not only their local communities but can, and often times do, expand worldwide.

Through collaborations with various community and business leaders and other diverse organizations, students are given innovative, hands-on experiences through workshops, informative speaking events, exclusive site visits, and participation in community service projects.

How Does this Benefit You?

When colleges, universities, and employers look for people to add to their team, they don't want someone who is just a good student, but also a good person.

Joining a leadership program amps up your resume, gives you valuable experience in the real world, makes you competitive in the market, helps you build lasting friendships, and it's fun!

Additionally, when you bring in people from different backgrounds and different perspectives, and get them working on a similar goal, opportunities are endless and you can truly make an impact on the community and world at large.

Lastly, being a part of YouLead GYL is being a part of our collective family. As a part of our family, you will receive assistance from both the program, the MEED Center, and the GDAACC

Make A True Change

There are many youth programs in the area; these programs, however, tend to target kids in a specific city or with a certain ethnic background. YouLead is unique in that we strive to be inclusive regardless of the student’s economic or ethnic background. In this way we are able to create a unique group with different perspectives and ideas.

Furthermore, in the GYL program, the community is our classroom. YouLead GYL participants attend monthly, one-day sessions to examine various topics impacting our world. Program sessions are held on the third Saturday of each month from August through May. Community and business leaders will host leadership sessions at various locations throughout the DFW area. Program sessions are designed to promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
