Through professional development, social, volunteer, and other activities, the members of the Bethesda chapter aim to strengthen young government leaders’ commitment to public service. YGL-Bethesda serves as a forum for public servants to connect with each other, collaborate on meaningful projects, and have fun with their colleagues across government.
YGL-Bethesda values our members and their service of the American people through their government work. We recognize the importance of recruiting and retaining enthusiastic, talented people in the government, and we see YGL-Bethesda as a means to achieve that objective.
YGL-Bethesda is a member-driven organization. All of our ideas and events are developed by members who see a need and want to fulfill that need. Our executive board exists primarily to support these member-driven initiatives.
