YGL Serves: MLK Day of Service

2013 Year in Review: YGL Los Angeles

YGL presentation banner-LosAngeles

With the help of the Greater Los Angeles Federal Executive Board and strong support from YGL founder Steve Ressler and his GovLoop team, the Los Angeles chapter of Young Government Leaders had an amazing year and grew to more than 400 members. A more focused promotion of the President’s Pathways Program, hosting the first NextGen Training Summit outside of Washington, DC, and increased social media presence were highlights for the chapter in 2013.

You can read more about YGL-LA in 2013 on page 5 of the FEB’s 2013 Annual Report:

FEB 2013 Annual Report

We celebrated our most active year to date with a holiday party on December 19th at Casey’s in Downtown Los Angeles. Supporting the Mayor’s Crisis Response Team, YGL-LA members donated more than 50 teddy bears to representatives of the Mayor’s Office! It was great to show local city representatives how young Federal leaders also care about the community in which they live and work. Thank you to all YGL-LA members who attended the event and donated teddy bears. Special thanks to new YGL-LA board member, Anna Soliman, for organizing the event and teddy bear drive!



The event also allowed our new 2014 YGL-LA Leadership Board to meet and talk with chapter members. If you were unable to attend the event, please click here and Meet the Team. The diverse and experienced board is excited to build on the chapter’s 2013 growth and guaranteed to represent YGL-LA members well.

Happy New Year!
