Be the difference.

“YLC has given me the opportunity to do inspiring work around the community and cultivate my leadership skills in a supportive and comfortable environment. I am passionate about touching the lives of others and making a lasting impact on the world. YLC has equipped me with skills and experiences I will carry with me for the rest of my life!” – Junior at Ridge.

“I decided to join Community in Crisis because I wanted to make a change in my community, and I really liked what the organization is doing in order to prevent drug use/help people who are in need.” – Junior, Bernards High.

Lead with Love.
Let's see how far this act of kindness can go!

The Community in Crisis Youth Leadership Council is teaming up with Empower Somerset to send oodles of luck in goodie bags to all those students taking their end of year exams! When you receive your goodie bag, send a photo to leadwithlovecic@gmail.com. The idea is to pay it forward to two more people. Didn’t receive a goodie bag? No problem, pay forward your act of kindness in some other way.
