Young Leaders Advisory Council 


In addition to our Advisory Board, we are blessed to have a group of young professionals who are committed to furthering our mission and vision. Nationally, this Council is one of the first of its kind for The Salvation Army. We are very proud to have these Young Leaders as part of our organization, and we are grateful to the leadership and support they provide for our Turn-Around Jumpers Basketball Tournament, Father-Daughter Masquerade and Tickets for Teens, which provides movie tickets to low-income families at Christmas Bureau Distribution.
