One the central aspects of our community engagement through the years has come through our involvement with the Young Men's Business League of Austin.
Founded in 1913, The Young Men's Business League (YMBL) is one of the oldest and most respected social service organizations in Austin. For 100 years, the YMBL has built today's young professionals into tomorrow's leaders by creating connections, fostering leadership development, and serving the Austin Sunshine Camps.
In addition to hosting events such as the Austin Under 40 Awards (in partnership with the Young Women's Alliance) and the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run, the YMBL also hosts an Annual Golf Classic, Spring and Fall Flings and offers various activity groups for members to connect around the hobbies they enjoy, such as golf, hunting and fishing and the YMBL BBQ Group. The main thrust of the YMBL is the Austin Sunshine Camp (ASC). ASC serves more than 800 low-income, high potential children every summer and many more through year-round leadership and mentoring programs. For more on the Austin Sunshine Camps - check out our other blog posts to see what its all about and what we've been up to.
Patrick currently serves on the Board of Directors as the Chair of the Zilker Rental Committee. If you are at all interested in joining YMBL or finding out more about it you can check out their website or reach out to Patrick. He would love to get you set up and established within this great organization.
