At the Y, we believe a leader lives in all of us. In recognition of the student leaders that have inspired us to do more, we recently founded the Leadership Circle with the goal of reaching 100 Founding Members.
The Leadership Circle is special group that gives monthly so future students can have the same opportunities we all had. It is a truly important initiative that strengthens the connection between past and future leaders and keeps members in the loop with all that is happening at the Y.
Daniel Guico, who graduated in 2013 and was on the Student Board and a leader in Alternative Spring Break, joined the Leadership Circle so he could give back,
“I couldn’t imagine my college life without the University YMCA,” Dan Guico said. “Between bike rides through Champaign-Urbana with SECS to cross country volunteering journeys through ASB, the Y gave me a place to gain experience in cause-driven leadership and unique memories that I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I saw the Leadership Circle as a way to give back and to allow more students to have similar transformative experiences.”
Joining is as easy as purchasing a cup of coffee a month. Visit universityymca.org/support_us/leadership_circle for more information.
