The Young Leaders Advisory Board was established within the Mahoning Valley Historical Society in 2002 to assist in developing a membership base focused on people 21 to 45. Its goal is to engage a new generation within the community, increase general awareness of the historical society and participation in its activities, events and programs, and develop a future leadership of the society.
Although the target audience of YLAB is young, people of all ages are encouraged to attend.
