The Young Men's Business League Gives Back to Austin’s Youth
In March 2019, Sam joined the Young Men’s Business League of Austin (YMBL) to be a part of the life changing programs the YMBL offers to Austin’s at-risk and disadvantage youth. Even though the YMBL creates a network of young businessmen in Austin, their major philanthropic endeavor in time and money is the Austin Sunshine Camp (ASC). ASC serves more than 1,000 low-income, high potential children every summer and many more through year-round leadership and mentoring programs.
For over 75 years, the Austin Sunshine Camps have provided disadvantaged children with experiences to enrich and nourish their lives. In 1928, the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL) established the first summer camp in Zilker Park to bolster under-fed children’s immunity against tuberculosis with food, fun, fresh-air and sunshine.
Founded in 1913, The YMBL is one of the oldest social service organizations in Austin. For 100 years, the YMBL has built today's young professionals into tomorrow's leaders by creating connections, fostering leadership development, and serving the Austin Sunshine Camps.
Austin Sunshine Camp programs are offered free of charge to youth at-risk and children of low income households. The YMBL’s year round fundraising efforts such as the Silicon Labs Sunshine Run, Annual Golf Classic and Spring & Fall Flings fund the ASC programs.
