As The Sports Museum continues to grow programmatically and financially, it is important to add input and manpower from the next generation of Boston's leaders. This will ultimately help move the organization and its programs forward, and help continue to build an even stronger network of philanthropic supporters.

The Young Leaders Council (YLC) is comprised of young Boston and Greater Boston-based professionals, from a variety of industries, who have a vested interest in seeing The Sports Museum reach the next level of success. This council is driven by a passion to develop, enhance, and support the overall mission of The Sports Museum. The primary focus of the YLC is to oversee the management of The Sports Museum team in the Rodman Ride for Kids, taking place every fall.
