Through our Year-Round Membership, One-Week Leadership Summit, and opportunities to apply the life & leadership-skills we teach, we're changing what leadership training looks like for young women.

Members of Young Elites receive exclusive access and admission to leadership and life skills-building events with Partners in the community throughout the Fall & Spring semesters.
Experts in intellectual, physical, and team-building challenges lead monthly sessions, host community events, and set up service opportunities that cultivate the ELITES leadership values: Excellence, Leadership, Initiative, Tenacity, Execution, and Service.
There isn’t another organization that meets young women where they are, lifts them up – their whole-person – and shows them how to live their life on purpose.

Young Elites leadership training inspires intellectual, physical, & social growth.

High school girls who have gone through Young Elites are characterized as…

  • Critical thinkers
  • Emotionally intelligent
  • Personally responsible

  • Active
  • Goal setters
  • Health-conscious

  • Collaborative
  • Servant-minded
  • Positive mentors

Young Elites is designed for families who want the best – opportunities, support, network, life-skills, & positive social experiences – for their daughters.

“Young Elites bears an extreme importance not only to me but also to the community as it helps cultivate young female leaders. In addition to the many leadership skills we’re taught at Young Elites, we are also taught the importance of collaboration and respect of others’ differences, thoughts, and ideas. I, along with other girls in the community, will carry the core values taught by Young Elites – excellence, leadership, initiative, tenacity, execution, and service – as we transition to college and beyond as leaders and strong female figures in our society.” Mackenzie Hanby, YE Alumni
