When young men and women stand together, there’s no limit to what we can do.

Genesis Young Leaders


Genesis Young Leaders (GYL)is a group of young professionals, both men and women, who stand up to help stop domestic violence in the Dallas community. Founded in 2001, Genesis Young Leaders are an invaluable component in supporting our mission and promoting domestic violence awareness to other like-minded young professionals.

The mission of GYL is to eliminate family violence through volunteerism, education, and community awareness. As a part of Genesis Young Leaders, members take part in networking events and happy hours, a summer BBQ and Fall Festival, and host the hottest party of the winter season, GYL Masquerade. GYL members are advocates and educators who believe that if we all work together the spread the same message, we can put an end to domestic violence.
