The purpose of The Storehouse Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is to provide high school students with leadership experience while fulfilling the mission of The Storehouse to feed, clothe, and care as neighbors in one community.
Members have an opportunity to serve The Storehouse neighbors directly, while developing the following skills:
Casting a vision, developing a strategy, and implementing a plan that supports the mission of The Storehouse
Articulating challenges within the community that may have previously gone unnoticed
Cultivating a set of skills that will equip members for future endeavors
Membership is open to all high school students entering 9th – 12th grades. Although attendance at all council meetings is strongly encouraged, members are required to serve and attend at least 6 of the 8 council service/meeting days, all held on Saturdays from 8:30 – 1:00 pm, to satisfy membership requirements.
Each day will account for 5 service hours that can be accredited to other organizational requirements as the member needs (e.g., high school requirements, National Honor Society requirements, etc). Council meetings will be held on The Storehouse campus.
The YLC 2022-2023 year will officially begin on Saturday, August 20, 2022 with a mandatory Kick-Off & Orientation meeting from 11:30 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.
