Interest in Membership

YMSL is a sponsorship organization, which means a Prospective member needs to be sponsored by a current member of the Chapter she wishes to join.

YMSL year runs May 1 thru April 30. Membership enrollment for new members takes place February/March of the son’s 8th grade year. Therefore it is best to secure a sponsor in the fall of the son’s 8th grade year to have the best chance of joining a YMSL chapter.

Find a Sponsor

If you know someone in YMSL, talk to them about her Chapter’s membership requirements and membership drive timeline. If you do not know someone in YMSL, you may:

  1. Contact a chapter directly using the “Contact This Local Chapter” tab on their website (The list of YMSL Chapters are found here). 
  2. If you do not know which Chapter to contact, please visit theYMSL National Website, select the “Contact Us” tab and fill out the form. Your information will go to the appropriate VP on the National Board of YMSL and they will get back to you.

Please note: Securing a sponsor and/or inquiring about membership does not guarantee membership in the Chapter.

Contact a Chapter

The best way to find out more about joining a specific Chapter is to contact the Chapter directly via their YMSL website. Because YMSL Chapters are run by volunteers (they do not have offices or staff).

Contact the chapter directly using the “Contact This Local Chapter” tab on their website (The list of YMSL Chapters are found here).
