Welcome to the first Colorado chapter of YMSL!

To assist, serve, and support those who are in need in our community, develop leadership skills among our membership, and promote mother-son relationships.

YMSL National

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. In 2014, YMSL members have served more than 135,000 community service hours.

YMSL Fort Collins

Launched in 2015, YMSL Fort Collins is the very first YMSL chapter in Colorado. In our inaugural year, we will bring in both incoming freshman and sophomore classes with a targeted membership of 50-60 members. The founding group of ten like-minded moms are excited to make a positive impact in Fort Collins while grooming our sons to be respectful, grateful, and giving citizens in our community.

The Three Pillars of YMSL: Philanthropy, Education, and Leadership

  • Philanthropy - Each member of YMSL is required to serve at least 20 hours of community service in support of approved philanthropies in their area.
  • Education - Each young man attends five out of seven meetings a year with their grade level. Meetings are used to expand their knowledge and experience in a variety of topics including practical life skills, social skills, civic responsibility and life choices.
  • Leadership - there are six core leadership values emphasized: responsibility, courage, perseverance, citizenship, honesty, and respect. Each young man holds a unique position in the organization during their four years.
