Welcome to YMSL Peninsula!
To assist, serve, and
support those who are in need in our community.
Young Men's Service
League is a successful philanthropic and developmental non-profit organization
that initiates and encourages young men and their mothers to pursue
philanthropic involvement in their community and provides an opportunity to
enhance mother/son relationships.
YMSL was founded in Plano,
Texas by Pam and Julie Rosener who envisioned an organization that would allow
mothers and their high school-aged sons to work together in support of those in
need within the community. YMSL Inc has a National Board of Directors
which governs and promotes the expansion of YMSL Chapters throughout the United
States. YMSL members have served over 100,000 community service hours since the
organization was formed in 2001.
YMSL PENINSULA CHAPTER
Launched in May 2011 by
two local moms, Terri Murai and Michele Young, YMSL Peninsula Chapter
represents the San Francisco Bay Peninsula community and serves over 20
organizations from San Francisco to Palo Alto, CA. Current membership includes
over 80 mothers and their high school-aged sons.
YMSL focuses on
providing teenage boys with the opportunities to volunteer in the community
alongside their mothers, improve leadership skills, and develop new life
skills. In addition to philanthropy work, boys attend six meetings a year with
their grade level. Meetings are used to expand their knowledge and experience
in a variety of topics such as career choice, cooking, budgeting, civics, and
more. Since the boys plan and implement their own meetings, each one holds a
position of responsibility.
YMSL Peninsula Chapter
works with a wide array of philanthropies covering a range of areas including
Second Harvest Food Bank, Surfrider Foundation, Samaritan House, Self Help for
the Elderly, St. Vincent de Paul, Habitat for Humanity, and many others.
