MYLEAD IS ABOUT…

positively transforming the lives of Michigan youth. Our mission is to motivate and enable the youth of Michigan to continuously make a positive impact on their communities through leadership and service. MYLead’s flagship programs are high-energy three day youth leadership conferences held each spring. Ongoing programs are also provided to MYLead alumni through the MYLead Community Board. Years later, participants recall MYLead programs as a positive turning point to realizing their personal leadership potential in our Michigan communities.

Outcomes for participants of MYLead programs include enhanced self confidence, critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and a desire to serve others. Specific leadership tools are provided, including stepping outside one’s comfort zone, understanding different leadership styles, goal setting, public speaking, ways to motivate others, and more. A key ingredient to these outcomes is the opportunity to interact with peer leaders from across our great state of Michigan. Even more incredible, 100% of MYLead alumni would recommend MYLead to a friend. For more detail, check out the results of our extensive ten-year survey on the effectiveness of our program.

MYLead is operated entirely by volunteers, over 200 in total. Not a single member of our staff is paid. MYLead is funded largely through donations from community groups, businesses, and individuals. This makes MYLead accessible to all high schools across the state. Year after year, our volunteers and supporters are motivated by the tremendous impact in the lives of our participants. MYLead is also a federally-recognized 501(c)3 non-profit.
