A message from our 2020 Boston Marathon Runner, Kilee!
Hi everyone, my name is Kilee Holmes. I'm a freshman at Harvard, and I'm elated to say I'm running the Boston Marathon. The organization I'm running for, the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation, has helped shape me to be the person that I am today! Please help me reach my goal by donating so we can ensure other kids are able to have the same life-changing opportunity.
Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation
MYL Foundation provides outstanding high school students with the skills, opportunities, and inspiration to affect positive change in their communities.Our vision is a world where young people embody citizenship through service and leadership in their communities.MYL Foundation’s values are highlighted by the five points of its MassSTAR Conference’s Curriculum: Respect, Responsibility, Collaboration, Initiative, and Intentionality. We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to access these values.
The MassSTAR (Massachusetts STudents Accepting Responsibility) Citizenship Conference is the flagship MYL Foundation event. This three-day leadership conference will be returning to Lasell College in Newton, MA. We invite one sophomore from every Massachusetts-accredited public, private, charter, and vocational school to participate in an exciting, hands-on learning experience. Student delegates are nominated and chosen by their school principals, guidance counselors, teachers, and advisors, based on their demonstrated and potential leadership ability. Since its inception in 1974, MYL Foundation’s annual programs have reached more than 5,000 students.
