Supporting Youth Leadership in Washington, D.C.

Published on

Schochor, Federico and Staton was a proud sponsor of the 2014 Spirit of Service Awards Dinner for the Youth Leadership Foundation (YLF) on November 19 at the Fairmont Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The Spirit of Service Awards is one of the YLF’s primary fundraisers to support its mission of providing academic and character-building programs to D.C.’s at-risk youth. This year’s event was a great success and celebrated the Honorable Howard S. Chasanow (Ret.) as the 2014 Spirit of Service Honoree for his outstanding leadership and involvement with the organization.

Since 1997, YLF has helped over three thousand students with a spirit of friendship, professionalism and service. Their teachers educate students about striving for excellence, the freedom to serve society and their responsibilities within it.

In a city where the high school graduation rate is less than 60%, 97% of YLF participants who complete the program graduate from high school and enroll in college. As a member of the Washington, D.C. community, Schochor, Federico and Staton appreciates YLF’s commitment to youth and building a better future.
