Celebrate #GivingTuesday with FOCUS St. Louis
Share |


There's a day for giving thanks.
Two for scoring holiday shopping deals.
And there's a day to give back. #GivingTuesday 


On Tuesday, Dec. 1, join FOCUS St. Louis in the global movement to celebrate generosity - while making a direct and positive impact in the St. Louis region.

This year, we invite you to inspire the next generation of leaders by making a contribution to the Youth Leadership St. Louis scholarship fund.

What happens when you:

  • Bring together 160+ high school juniors from 55 zip codes across the region
  • Give them opportunities to practice collaboration, facilitation, problem-solving and other valuable leadership skills
  • And expose them to the issues, leaders and challenges of our community?

Amazing things happen. Don't just take our word for it:

"My time in YLSL has tremendously changed my life. For the first time in my life, I was challenged to comprehend the complexity of the issues in our society." - Semhar Mekonnen

"I now realize more than ever that I am responsible for being aware of my surroundings. Excuses about obliviousness and confusion are unacceptable because even when they are true, they sound pitiful in comparison to stories of oppression." - Keona Kalu

“The YLSL program has shown me that in order to be a strong leader, you must get out of your comfort zone and explore the world around you.” - Marie Auton

Help us continue to inform, inspire, and empower tomorrow's leaders with your gift today.
