MEET DEYSSY & SANTOS - YOUTH SPOTLIGHTS
Deyssy and Santos, two young women with passion, vision, and persistence, are attempting to create equitable and just conditions for immigrant youth through LAYC's Latino Youth Leadership Council (LYLC). In fact, Deyssy and Santos are the LYLC founders, and in under a year they have led the LYLC in organizing events, reaching more than 600 people in our city. How did their idea become a movement?

RECOGNIZING LAYC/MMYC HOST PARENTS
Laura and Richard are truly champions in the lives of the most vulnerable youth in Maryland. Since 2013, they have served as host parents for LAYC's Maryland Host Homes program. As host parents they provide emergency shelter to youth who are in an unsafe situation at home or dealing with homelessness. 
LAYC MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN OUR LIVES AND WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY
This video was recently produced by the young people in the LAYC's Latino Youth Leadership Council (LYLC). They created this video to participate in the Starbucks Foundation's "Upstanders Challenge" in celebration of charities that are making a difference in our communities. As young community leaders these young people are learning the skills they need while developing their young minds to tackle the many issues our youth face daily. Hope you enjoy this video as much as we do!

This year give the gift of stocks to LAYC!

When you give appreciated securities directly to LAYC, you eliminate the capital gains tax - and you can use the current value of the securities as the basis for your personal tax deduction. It is more advantageous from a tax standpoint than giving cash or selling the securities and giving the proceeds. If interested, please go here and download our stock donation form to make your gift.
