New Young Leadership Council to Inspire Local Philanthropy and Volunteerism
San Bernardino, CA – The newly formed affinity group, Young Leadership Council (YLC), was recently established as part of Arrowhead United Way (AUW) to help bring lasting positive change in the community. The group consists of contributors to AUW between the ages of 21 and 40. They were motivated by last year’s successful formation of the Women’s Leadership Council.
The mission of the YLC is to be actively engaged in the community and inspire philanthropy and volunteerism by collaboratively partnering with the next generation of decision-makers in a unique blend of service, education, and social networking throughout the year. The founding committee includes several local professionals:
- Karla Morales, San Bernardino School Employees Federal Credit Union
- Nathan Rawls, UPS
- Tommy Mayers, City of San Bernardino
- Iwona Contreras, California State University, San Bernardino
- Evert Ortega, KOHL’s Distribution Center
- Ivory Robinson, KOHL’s Distribution Center
- Daniel Sandoval, Target Distribution Center
- Edwin Gomez, San Bernardino City Unified School District
Karla Morales states, “With so many different generations in the workforce, it is important to recognize the influence mentors have on the developing careers of others. That is why I am excited to be a part of this council. And, the volunteer opportunities allow me to personally give back and help others in the community.”
