THE POWER OF “YES”

Being a part of CYL means you believe in the power of “Yes” – the willingness to jump into an adventure even if you don’t have it all figured out just yet. It means you want to learn more about the world around you, discover your own gifts, and make a real impact.

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

SOLID GUIDANCE

We provide the framework to help you know what this all looks like. You’ll have incredible “old” people who want to help you through each step. You won’t be alone and you won’t look dumb.

FUN OPPS &
REAL IMPACT

We get it: You’ve had some less than stellar volunteer experiences. Not here. We partner with the best nonprofits to create opportunities that will challenge your perceptions and increase your impact.

COOL
PEOPLE

Our community is seeking ways to help others live a fuller life. We’re not all-stars; we’re fellow travelers finding the answers to life’s tough questions. All are invited and no one is left behind.

YOU BECOMING AWESOME(R)

Where this takes you is largely up to you, but we know one thing: you won’t be the same. You’re going to be more confident, more compassionate, and more capable for whatever lies ahead.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’ll DO

LEADERSHIP EXPLORATION MEETINGS
(LEMs)

You’ll get together with cool people to figure out what the best kind of leaders look like.

SERVICE
ADVENTURES

Opportunities that will change your life as you realize just how much impact you can have.

PERSONAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We’ll help connect you to the missions you really care about so you can invest where it’s most valuable to you.

IMPACT NEVER FELT SO GOOD

Stevie S. Testimonial

“In that very moment, I realized what makes me happy. Being there, committing my time to such an amazing soul – and changing my community – that’s what makes me happy.” – Stevie S., CYL ’16

Maddy W. Testimonial 2

“What inspires me is being able to see the smiles on others people’s faces when you help change their lives and knowing that the same smile is on yours.” – Maddy W., CYL ’17

Maddy W. Testimonial

I have begun to understand that there is a world outside of my own, a world that could really use some volunteers. I have really been engaged in helping children in different situations from me to have a stronger foundation and be a rock they can grab hold of.” – Maddy W., CYL ’17

Joshua M. Testimonial 2

“When I returned home from the service adventure, I spent about two days reminiscing the events, and not regretting anything.” – Joshua M., CYL ’17

Joshua Testimonial 3

My motto in life is quite simple, ‘live it to the fullest.’ CYL does not only fill up my cup of life, it allows it to overflow and drip into everyone’s cup around me.” – Joshua M., CYL ’17

Molly C Testimonial

“I have the mindset that every action I take has an impact. And I have the control of whether that’s a positive impact or not. I had no idea that my mind could have such a positive effect on my life.”– Molly C., CYL ’17

Molly C Testimonial

“Exploring a new way to lead is leading with humility. It’s leading from the heart. It’s listening to others and representing those with no voice. It’s leading for the benefit of everyone. And those are skills you don’t find anywhere else.”– Molly C., CYL ’17

Max A. Testimonial 2

“The biggest thing stopping you is yourself. There is no one physically in the way of you internally becoming a better person.”- Max A., CYL ’16

Riley R. Testimonial

“Leadership is collaborating and cooperating with people from all different backgrounds to create and innovate; it’s being open minded to other people’s ideas while still asserting my own.” – Riley R., CYL ’20

Daisy D. Testimonial

“CYL has given me so much in my life. I don’t think I would be the same person if I hadn’t encountered it because it has given me so many experiences that have given me a new perspective.”– Daisy D., CYL ’19

YOU’RE READY

 

You don’t need to wait for college, or to be more popular, or anything else; your capacity for leadership begins the second you decide to make a positive impact where you are.
