Class of 2022: Our Newest Members


Welcome to YMSL University Park Chapter!

Young Men's Service League is a non-profit organization that initiates and encourages young men and their mothers to pursue philanthropic involvement in their community and provides an opportunity to enhance mother/son relationships.

Young Men’s Service League, Inc has a National Board of Directors which governs and promotes the expansion of YMSL Chapters throughout the United States to allow young men and their mothers to assist, serve, and support those who are in need in their communities. YMSL members have served over 100,000 community service hours since the organization was formed in 2001.

YMSL History

YMSL was founded by Pam and Julie Rosener who envisioned an organization that would allow mothers and their high school aged sons to work together in support of those in need within the community. They recruited other interested mothers who shared their vision and turned that dream into the reality that is now YMSL.

The initial YMSL chapter is in Plano, Texas , where Pam and Julie worked with other empowered mothers and sons to create a highly successful philanthropic and developmental organization for young men and their mothers.

THE 3 PILLARS OF YMSL

Education: The boys have regular meetings, each with a specific theme and involve people in the community to serve as speakers.  The themes include: practical life skills, social skills, civic responsibility and philanthropy. A strong emphasis is placed on respect and responsibility.

Leadership: Each member is required to hold a position every year, for example: president, vice president, secretary, life skills, leadership, writer or photographer. From these experiences, they learn valuable leadership lessons about public speaking, organization, persuasive oral and written communication, decision-making, planning and time management.

Philanthropy: At the heart of YMSL is getting out in the community to do meaningful work – often meeting and helping people in the community who are less fortunate or physically not as capable.  YMSL boys strengthen their own personal relationships by becoming aware of new needs and issues within the community.  They also strengthen their bonds with fellow YMSL members as they collaborate and work together.
