Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nation’s largest community-based voluntary health organization and has played a role in virtually every groundbreaking cancer advance realized. With volunteers as its backbone, the Society tackles all cancers on all fronts to eliminate cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering.

The Young Professional Leadership Council (YPLC) is a group of young professionals that support the mission and programs of the American Cancer Society of the National Capital Region through fundraising initiatives and positive public relations. Further, we hope to give our members the chance to develop their skills and experience in the non-profit sector by working with one of the world's most respected and recognized charitable institutions.

Description

The Young Professional Leadership Council of Washington, D.C., is a group of young professionals in the DC/MD/VA area interested in helping promote the American Cancer Society through fundraising, positive public relations, and advocacy.

Would you recommend American Cancer Society Young Professional Leadership Council?

The ACS DC Associate Board of Ambassadors is a great place to volunteer! When you volunteer with the ABOA, you're not only working to fight cancer, you're building your leadership skills and building your network. Since this is a junior board, everyone is able to bring their skills to the table and offer a unique, beneficial perspective. I've volunteered with ABOA for a year and I've loved every minute.
