The YGL website states:
Young Government Leaders (YGL) is committed to providing the authentic voice for our generation of aspiring government leaders. Our membership consist of over 3,200 young feds and are growing every day. We are the only 501 (c)3 non-profit professional organization founded by, and led by, young government employees. We are actively building a community of leadership for young public servants across the country, through professional development activities, networking opportunities, social events, seminars, fellowships, and scholarships.
We have a strong presence in Washington, DC, and energetic regional chapters in Boston, Bethesda, Denver, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, along with emerging chapters in Albuquerque, Baltimore, Chicago, New York, and Seattle. YGL is the premiere professional organization for young government employees, no matter where you’re located.
Our members come to YGL events for the opportunity to build lasting relationships with other aspiring government leaders and to brainstorm about potential solutions to the significant challenges the government faces now and in the next century. YGL encourages members to get involved, make a difference, and develop their leadership potential. Concurrently, members are guaranteed to have fun, develop long lasting friendships, and make a real difference in the business of government.
I’ve worked with a lot of YGL members, it’s a great organization, and if you’re looking to get more involved with the organization, I’d encourage you to join today.
