Young Professional Leaders

Our Young Professional Leaders (YPL) are a diverse group of leaders who share a common interest in driving sustained change in their community, beginning with accelerating student achievement across our youngest learners.

The YPL experience includes exclusive networking events and volunteer opportunities for direct campus engagement.  YPL members gain a hands-on perspective into the challenges facing our neighborhood Dallas ISD elementary schools.  Our YPL members are informed, compassionate advocates, ready to make a long-term impact on schools, educators and children across the supported network.
