THANK YOU to everyone who attended this wonderful night. Please read the full event recap on our blog.


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 the new Youth Fund. Together, we can invest in cutting edge projects and celebrate youth advocacy. YLI 25 is Presented by Marin Community Foundation.

WHAT: 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 that invest in cutting edge projects and youth creativity.
