Youth Leadership Council

Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia Youth leadership Council

Students supporting wish kids through fundraising and awareness.

Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is a Make-A-Wish program that is beneficial not only to the children who receive the life-changing experience of a wish, but also to the students who help make those wishes possible. Through YLC, students work together to make a difference in their communities and in the life of a child who is fighting a critical illness.

Latest Status Update

  • We had to share a few last photos from Braden’s wish to meet animals at the zoo. He wrapped up an exciting day feeding giraffes, and making friends with Presley, an adorable penguin! Braden’s family shared that his wish really highlighted how far he’s come. Most importantly, Braden had a terrific day full of meeting new animal friends, and it was a day he won’t soon forget!
