The “Dream Big Gala” is the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the African American Youth Leadership Conference (AAYLC).  This occasion is to celebrate, honor and thank the many diverse volunteers and sponsors (both individuals and organizations), students, and leaders in our community who have helped to support over 12,000 students and parents of the AAYLC.  Our numerous partners have supported our youth by providing resources, financial assistance, volunteer time, and mentorships.  The AAYLC goals are to motivate, educate and inspire students to “Dream Big” so that they can achieve whatever goals and/or desires they may have to become contributing and productive members in their community and society.  The mission of the AAYLC is to assist “Youth in Building Respect & Responsibility for Future Success.”  Each partner of the AAYLC has been vital to the 25 years of the success.
