- Rob Avery from Microsoft provided his thoughts on corporate culture and what big companies look for in new hires and social media protocol.

- Jason Rhodes talked about how to sort out one's passion and discovering your gift, and how to build a career from it.

- Liam Banks, VP of the Atlanta Blaze professional lacrosse team, shared his keys to success and the benefits of hard work and passion for excellence in whatever you do.

- Steve McCoy, legendary Atlanta radio personality talked about his rise to the top and key tips to live by.

- Louis Leidenfrost, teenage entrepreneur shared his experience of starting a business at age 15 and turning into a thriving portfolio of businesses.

This was the first time the Centennial Chapter hosted a Career Fair and the response was tremendous from both the speakers and the 300 young men. Mary Elizabeth Sadd, Career Fair Chair was extremely pleased with the event, "We're so grateful that we were able to attract such an impressive group of speakers who made a deep and lasting impression on the boys."

The YMSL Centennial boys were also involved in the event. A number of the young men made presentations, handled registration for all 300 attendees, collected donations for FurKids and East Roswell Library, and introduced the speakers. According to Linda Menna, President of YMSL Centennial, "We're very fortunate to have the caliber of young men that we have in YMSL. Our members continue to make us proud everyday. The success of the Career Fair is a testament to their drive, curiosity, and wonderful character."

YMSL is a mother son service league dedicated to building leadership skills in their high school boys while serving the community through philanthropy. The Centennial, Alpharetta, and Milton chapters are just three of the 53 chapters nationwide. The members are from throughout north Fulton including Roswell, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, and Milton, Georgia.

Fort Collins (Colorado) Chapter Off To A Good Start!

Tue, 09/29/2015 - 13:05 -- Heidi Holguin
We are excited to be the first Colorado YMSL Chapter and have really jumped in to volunteer in our community this summer!  Our participation in the community has been well received from the philanthropies, our members, and fellow volunteers alike.  We held our official kick off meeting in May 2015 and will have our initial Mom's and Boys' meetings this September.

This summer, we were pleased to help out in many different ways around our community.  Our chapter members volunteered with Respite care and helped with their Summer Camp program.  We assisted the Catholic Charities with clean up, landscaping, and serving coffee and meals to the homeless.  We worked with the US Postal Service and helped with their annual canned food collection which benefits the Larimer County Food Bank.  Our chapter was also able to help the Food Bank directly, sorting goods brought in and helped to prepare meals for those in need.  Many of our member assisted gentlemen from the Elderhaus on their weekly fishing excursions and helped with their Father's Day Bar-b-Que where we grilled brats and played games with the guests.  YMSL Fort Collins had a wonderful opportunity, through the Healing Worriers Program, to assist Veterans and their families at the Greeley Stampede Rodeo on Patriot's day.   We were able to help The Learning House, a non profit early childhood school, with several projects including landscaping and their annual Carnival fundraiser.  These are just a few ways that we have been able to help out this summer.
 
It has been a pleasure to get out in our city and help where there is a need.  YMSL Fort Collins is looking forward to many years of assisting our community!

YMSL TRAILBLAZERS:  Posterity in Action

At a recent YMSL meeting, Fort Worth City Council Member, Jungus Jordan, spoke to us of the importance of contributing to the posterity of our community.  Councilman Jordan’s talk focused primarily on the investment that was made by previous generations to build our interstate highways and bridges.  He also reminded us that by building stronger communities, we add to the Posterity of our Nation. 

The YMSL Trailblazers completed 2014 with a generous amount of time and effort going towards building-up the Posterity of the Fort Worth community.  Early in November, YMSL moms and sons dedicated their Saturday to be a part of Hope Farm’s Fall Festival.  It was an honor to partner with other volunteer groups who supported this event.  600 people were present, 315 bags of food were given to families in need.  There were lots of smiles as pumpkins were painted and participants happily enjoyed sack races, good food, and more Fall Festival fun.  Another great YMSL volunteer opportunity was organized by YMSL Trailblazer mom, Kimberly Thode.  She worked with Deborah Villicana, Trailblazer Philanthropy Chair, for YMSL members to participate in the Salvation Army Angel Tree at local malls.  On Black Friday, YMSL shirts could be seen at the mall, as Trailblazer moms and sons signed up shoppers to adopt an Angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree.  It was a great opportunity for the Trailblazers to represent YMSL, as they positively interacted with the public and shared information about what it means to adopt an Angel. 

These community volunteer programs allow YMSL members to actively and meaningfully contribute to the Posterity of our community.  Councilman Jungus Jordan emphasized that Posterity is a generational gift: The time and effort we give today, affects future generations. 

When YMSL moms and sons volunteer together, Posterity is fortified and established for the next generation of our families, communities, and our Nation.

At a recent YMSL meeting, Fort Worth City Council Member, Jungus Jordan, spoke to us of the importance of contributing to the posterity of our community.  Councilman Jordan’s talk focused primarily on the investment that was made by previous generations to build our interstate highways and bridges.  He also reminded us that by building stronger communities, we add to the Posterity of our Nation. 

The YMSL Trailblazers completed 2014 with a generous amount of time and effort going towards building-up the Posterity of the Fort Worth community.  Early in November, YMSL moms and sons dedicated their Saturday to be a part of Hope Farm’s Fall Festival.  It was an honor to partner with other volunteer groups who supported this event.  600 people were present, 315 bags of food were given to families in need.  There were lots of smiles as pumpkins were painted and participants happily enjoyed sack races, good food, and more Fall Festival fun.  Another great YMSL volunteer opportunity was organized by YMSL Trailblazer mom, Kimberly Thode.  She worked with Deborah Villicana, Trailblazer Philanthropy Chair, for YMSL members to participate in the Salvation Army Angel Tree at local malls.  On Black Friday, YMSL shirts could be seen at the mall, as Trailblazer moms and sons signed up shoppers to adopt an Angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree.  It was a great opportunity for the Trailblazers to represent YMSL, as they positively interacted with the public and shared information about what it means to adopt an Angel. 

These community volunteer programs allow YMSL members to actively and meaningfully contribute to the Posterity of our community.  Councilman Jungus Jordan emphasized that Posterity is a generational gift: The time and effort we give today, affects future generations. 

When YMSL moms and sons volunteer together, Posterity is fortified and established for the next generation of our families, communities, and our Nation.

Boys receive a check. Alpharetta, GA  (August 17, 2014) – This afternoon at Alpharetta High School, several hundred members of the Alpharetta, Centennial, Milton and North Fulton chapters of the Young Men’s Service League learned about the dangers of appearance and performance enhancing drug use. The program was presented by the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which is widely acknowledged as the leader in the advocacy against appearance and performance enhancing drug use by the youth of America.

Brian Parker, Educational Program Manager for the Taylor Hooton Foundation, warned that there is a national epidemic of anabolic steroid use among our youth that often goes unnoticed by parents, coaches and other adults. According to statistics published by the Taylor Hooton Foundation, over 1.5 million teens admit to using anabolic steroids and the median age for first time steroid use is fifteen.

Brian Parker, Educational Program Manager for the Taylor Hooton Foundation speaks to YMSL Chapters. The presentation began with a video that told the story of Taylor Hooton, a 17 year old athlete who took his own life after using anabolic steroids. The video included stories told by other young people whose lives were altered by steroid use. The presentation emphasized that steroid use is a problem with both athletes and non-athletes, and that teen girls are the fastest growing group of new users. The presentation reviewed the dangerous health effects of anabolic steroids and also covered the growing use and risks of supplements and human growth hormone (HGH).

At the conclusion of the presentation, Brian Parker expressed his opinion that “education is the best weapon we have in the fight against steroids.” He encouraged the young men in the audience to tell their friends what they learned and he urged all parents to talk to their kids about steroid use.

Several hundred mothers and sons representing the Young Men’s Service League attended the event, which was held in the packed auditorium of Alpharetta High School. The presentation was organized by the Alpharetta chapter of the Young Men’s Service League and was well attended by members of the Alpharetta, Centennial, Milton and North Fulton chapters.

The Young Men’s Service League raised more than $5,000 in donations for the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which was presented to Brian Parker by the senior class presidents of each of the Young Men’s Service League chapters.

About The Taylor Hooton Foundation: The Taylor Hooton Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating North America’s young people about the dangers of anabolic steroids and other appearance and performance enhancing drugs. The friends and family of Taylor Hooton formed the Foundation in 2004 after his untimely death at 17 years old following his use of anabolic steroids.

Boys receive a check. Alpharetta, GA  (August 17, 2014) – This afternoon at Alpharetta High School, several hundred members of the Alpharetta, Centennial, Milton and North Fulton chapters of the Young Men’s Service League learned about the dangers of appearance and performance enhancing drug use. The program was presented by the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which is widely acknowledged as the leader in the advocacy against appearance and performance enhancing drug use by the youth of America.

Brian Parker, Educational Program Manager for the Taylor Hooton Foundation, warned that there is a national epidemic of anabolic steroid use among our youth that often goes unnoticed by parents, coaches and other adults. According to statistics published by the Taylor Hooton Foundation, over 1.5 million teens admit to using anabolic steroids and the median age for first time steroid use is fifteen.

Brian Parker, Educational Program Manager for the Taylor Hooton Foundation speaks to YMSL Chapters. The presentation began with a video that told the story of Taylor Hooton, a 17 year old athlete who took his own life after using anabolic steroids. The video included stories told by other young people whose lives were altered by steroid use. The presentation emphasized that steroid use is a problem with both athletes and non-athletes, and that teen girls are the fastest growing group of new users. The presentation reviewed the dangerous health effects of anabolic steroids and also covered the growing use and risks of supplements and human growth hormone (HGH).

At the conclusion of the presentation, Brian Parker expressed his opinion that “education is the best weapon we have in the fight against steroids.” He encouraged the young men in the audience to tell their friends what they learned and he urged all parents to talk to their kids about steroid use.

Several hundred mothers and sons representing the Young Men’s Service League attended the event, which was held in the packed auditorium of Alpharetta High School. The presentation was organized by the Alpharetta chapter of the Young Men’s Service League and was well attended by members of the Alpharetta, Centennial, Milton and North Fulton chapters.

The Young Men’s Service League raised more than $5,000 in donations for the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which was presented to Brian Parker by the senior class presidents of each of the Young Men’s Service League chapters.

About The Taylor Hooton Foundation: The Taylor Hooton Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating North America’s young people about the dangers of anabolic steroids and other appearance and performance enhancing drugs. The friends and family of Taylor Hooton formed the Foundation in 2004 after his untimely death at 17 years old following his use of anabolic steroids.
