Welcome to YMSL Loudoun South Chapter!

Our chapter was formed in 2015.  Our membership is made up of 9th,10th,11th and 12th grade boys who attend Freedom, John Champe and Paul VI High Schools along with their moms.  The Loudoun South Chapter has 205 members with 101 mothers and 104 sons.  Last year we completed over 3500 hours of community service.

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. By the end of the 4 year program, each young man will have served no less than 75 hours to those in need in his community.  The majority of those hours will be served as a mother/son team.

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.

Here is  an article about our YMSL chapter published recently in the South Riding Magazine.  

On Sunday, April 22, 2018, over 30 South Riding teenage boys and their moms took to Tall Cedars Parkway to clean up trash in honor of Earth Day and as part of the Adopt -A -Highway Program. The boys and their moms collected over 26 bags of trash along the adopted stretch of Tall Cedars Parkway from Planting Field Drive to Route 50. The effort was undertaken by the Young Men's Service League (YMSL) of Loudoun South, a local chapter of a national organization that was formed locally in 2015. The Young Men's Service League is a non-profit organization whose mission is 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 of Loudoun South was founded three years ago and now has four classes, including 106 9th, 10th, 11th and 12 grade boys and their moms, most of which attend Freedom, John Champe or Paul IV High Schools. Their focus is on "Philanthropy, Education and Leadership" and provides moms/sons the opportunity to volunteer in the local community, improve leadership skills, and develop new life skills.

This year, YMSL members completed 4300 hours of service right here in our local Loudoun South community. Both boys and moms are required to complete 20 hours of philanthropy work with YMSL of Loudoun South's Philanthropy Partners per year. In addition to the Adopt-A-Highway Program, YMSL also partners with 20 other local philanthropic organizations such as Dulles South Food Pantry, SPROUT Therapeutic Riding and Education Center, Seven Loaves, Honor Flights, Serving our Willing Warriors, the Adler Center for Caring and Special Olympics of Loudoun.

Not only do boys serve in their local community, they attend and lead monthly meetings designed to expand their knowledge and experience on civic responsibility, life skills and important choices such as college planning, public speaking, goal setting, handling money, budgeting, proper weight training and nutrition, mental health, car maintenance and first aid training. In addition, YMSL hosts a mother-son awards banquet each year where they recognize and celebrate the achievements and growth of their young men and the impact they have made in the community.

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.
