The Westlake chapter of the Young Men’s Service League has been active for less than a year yet its 140 members have already donated almost 2,000 hours of volunteer hours to the Austin community.

The nonprofit service organization is made up of mothers and their sons. The purpose is to initiate and encourage young men and their mothers to pursue philanthropic involvement in their community while at the same time, provide an opportunity to enhance mother/son relationships.

The national organization includes dozens of community chapters across the United States. The Westlake chapter is the ninth and newest to the Austin area. Its members are divided equally between the 2019 and 2020 classes and most of the boys attend Westlake High School and other nearby schools.

The organization hosts a charity calendar where members can sign up for volunteer opportunities from approximately 24 area philanthropies, such as the Capital Area Food Bank and Sunshine Camps, The Trail Foundation and The Ronald McDonald House. Both mothers and sons are required to complete a minimum of 20 approved philanthropy hours per year and most of these are accomplished as a team. They must also attend monthly meetings and hold various leadership positions within their chapter.

“It’s not always easy to find volunteer opportunities you can do with your kids,” said Diane Anderson, a member mom at Westlake YMSL. “YMSL has relationships with many organizations who carefully select tasks that we can do together and are age appropriate. It’s a beautiful thing to see your teenage son giving back to the community and even better to be able to serve side by side.”

The tasks these members take on range from sorting food and clothing for several organizations to greeting Honor Flight veterans at the airport, preparing and delivering meals for Mobile Loaves and Fishes and working at various children’s camps.

Clay Buckner, a Westlake YMSL member, recalls a memorable experience was helping out at Camp Mabry.

“We helped clean off some of the old tanks and Jeeps the camp has as a part of their museum,” Buckner said. “It was just so cool being able to climb on and see this equipment close up. Normally, I don’t like cleaning but I felt it was a way to give back to the men and women who have done so much for our country, safety and way of life.”

The national organization includes dozens of community chapters across the United States. The Westlake chapter is the ninth and newest to the Austin area. Its members are divided equally between the 2019 and 2020 classes and most of the boys attend Westlake High School and other nearby schools.

The organization hosts a charity calendar where members can sign up for volunteer opportunities from approximately 24 area philanthropies, such as the Capital Area Food Bank and Sunshine Camps, The Trail Foundation and The Ronald McDonald House. Both mothers and sons are required to complete a minimum of 20 approved philanthropy hours per year and most of these are accomplished as a team. They must also attend monthly meetings and hold various leadership positions within their chapter.

“It’s not always easy to find volunteer opportunities you can do with your kids,” said Diane Anderson, a member mom at Westlake YMSL. “YMSL has relationships with many organizations who carefully select tasks that we can do together and are age appropriate. It’s a beautiful thing to see your teenage son giving back to the community and even better to be able to serve side by side.”

The tasks these members take on range from sorting food and clothing for several organizations to greeting Honor Flight veterans at the airport, preparing and delivering meals for Mobile Loaves and Fishes and working at various children’s camps.

Clay Buckner, a Westlake YMSL member, recalls a memorable experience was helping out at Camp Mabry.

“We helped clean off some of the old tanks and Jeeps the camp has as a part of their museum,” Buckner said. “It was just so cool being able to climb on and see this equipment close up. Normally, I don’t like cleaning but I felt it was a way to give back to the men and women who have done so much for our country, safety and way of life.”

Centenial Chapter Patriots Day Experience

Sun, 01/29/2017 - 16:53 -- Heidi Holguin

The Centennial Chapter recently participated in a mother/son outing to watch the movie Patriot's Day. Prior to the movie, the boys had the privilege of viewing a pre taped video of five responders from the Beverly, Massachusetts Fire Department. They have been serving at the marathon since 2002 and were present on April 15th, 2013 when the bombings occurred.

YMSL as an organization (all Alpharetta area chapters) has been chosen as NFCC’s Civic Partner of the Year!

NFCC has had a great relationship with Alpharetta Chapter since 2012 and Milton Chapter helped us with the Stamp Out Hunger Drive since 2015, but this summer they advocated for the chance to work with ALL of the area YMSL Chapters and they were NOT disappointed!

YMSL  provided over 200 volunteers, over 3000 hours of service and dozens of donations (we LOVE all of the Oil, diapers and other items!)

Here is a breakdown of hours below as of 10/31/16:

Alpharetta Chapter-(we love our long time pals!)  2,353

Centennial Chapter (came on this summer with a BANG!)  330

Milton Chapter (the only chapter who can’t work the food pantry and look at their hours!)  187

Northeast Atlanta Chapter (ALWAYS show up happy and ready to work hard!)  129

North Fulton Chapter (the last to join, so did not get the same number of days to work, but so willing and so strong!)  91

 YMSL Total Impact: 3090 hours!  Wow.  And 800 of those were just since June!

North Fulton Community Charities  are so grateful for our relationship with YMSL and can’t wait to continue working with your boys and moms for years to come!
