Young Leadership Committee

The Young Leadership Committee (YLC) is a diverse group of civic-minded young professionals who have been personally touched by Alzheimer’s disease in some way and seek to raise funds and awareness for the Rita Hayworth Gala and the Alzheimer’s Association.

The YLC is always seeking to engage new members. If you are interested in learning more about the YLC, please contact Alyssa Cochran at or 312.604.1680.

To donate to a YLC member's fundraising efforts, please visit the YLC fundraising page.
