Interested in Applying for YLC this fall? Now is your chance!

Contact admin@youngleaderscouncil.org for application process questions or issues.

Applications are open for YLC Fall Classes – Nashville 75 and Williamson Class – with the goal for our meetings to be  in-person.  Click here to apply and send this info along to co-workers or friends who might be interested as well. Demand is higher than ever for seats in YLC classes. We accept applicants on a first come, first serve basis, and accept students in rounds. For example, Round 1 admits will include students who applied for previous classes but were wait-listed.  They will have 7-10 days to secure their seat, and then we will make Round two decisions, Round three decisions, etc. So, do not delay! Plus, our application is easier than ever to complete. Applying takes 10 minutes on our website. Once you send in our application, you will receive instructions to create a video interview. Once you send your video in for review, we will respond with admission decision. It is that easy! If you have other questions about our admission process, please contact YLC program manager, Rachel Blue, with questions | admin@youngleaderscouncil.org | We are happy to help! Applications will be accepted until July 20 or until the class is filled, whichever comes first. 
City Lights 2020 | Family & Children’s Service Spring Event

City Lights 2020 | Family & Children’s Service Spring Event

City Lights 2020 | Family & Children’s Service March 28, 2020 – 6:30PM

We love our nonprofit friends at Family & Children’s Service! In fact, they hosted our most recent Opening Class Session for Young Leaders Council! They are hosting a spring event, City Lights 2020 – honoring Hunter Atkins & John Steele.

The party will feature a 70s Disco theme with live music by legendary funk band Delicious, dancing, and catering by Johnny Haffner. John Steele and Hunter Atkins will be honored for their community service and support of FCS. It’s a cocktail supper (open buffet; no tables). This makes it easy for partygoers to mingle all night. 70s costumes are encouraged (but not required), and there will be fun surprises throughout the evening.

The event benefits Family & Children’s Service, which serves more than 50,000 of our community’s most vulnerable children and families each year.

If you or your business would like to sponsor the event, please contact Beth Hall at 615.340.9718

Diane Hayes Farewell Celebration on 6/19/19

Diane Hayes Farewell Celebration on 6/19/19

On June 19, Young Leaders Council celebrated one of Nashville’s greatest treasures and our former executive director, Diane Hayes. Over 400 alumni and supporters joined us for a wonderful evening in the Gulch Crossing club room, and the rain held off long enough for us to enjoy remarks by our board chair, Josh Livingston, Class #1 alum and Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis partner, Chase Cole, a wonderful song by Diane’s daughter and YLC alum, Holly Shepherd Urbanowicz, and remarks from Diane.

The evening would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors:


         

Additionally, our alumni honored Diane’s 24 years of service with donations to YLC to help meet our goal of raising $24K. We have an anonymous donor who is matching donations given in Diane’s honor up to $10K. IT’S NOT TOO LATE to give HERE.

Thank you for your support of Diane and YLC; our community is better because of YOU!
