Join Youth Leadership Institute and 300 of our closest friends as we celebrate 25 years of amplifying youth voice, over 100 policy victories, and the launch of our new Youth Fund. Together, we can invest in cutting edge projects and celebrate youth advocacy. YLI is Presented by Marin Community Foundation.
Youth participants from across our four regions of Central Valley, Marin, San Mateo, and San Francisco will share experiences from their work in interactive stations. You, our valuable adult allies, philanthropists, and supporters will have the opportunity to meet our inspirational youth and enjoy performances, music, a silent auction, a photo booth, and local gourmet food.
All funds raised on the night of our event will support the launch of our new Youth Fund. The fund will seed microgrants annually to invest in cutting edge projects and youth creativity.
Youth Leadership Institute Celebrates 25 Years is presented at SOMArts through participation in the Affordable Space Program, which provides below-market rental space, production and publicity assistance to nonprofit organizations, individual artists and other events and classes that meet our mission.
