Young Leaders

St. Michael's Young Leaders is a group of young professionals eager to make a difference in the community. They aim to raise funds and awareness about the hospital‘s innovative programs and ground-breaking research.

The St. Michael's Young Leaders are the new generation of hospital leaders. Since its inception in 2008, the group has raised over $1,000,000 net for St. Michael’s. They raised over $250,000 net in 2014 alone. In 2013, the Young Leaders pledged $1,000,000 to support St. Michael's Inspire 2018 Campaign.
