The History behind National League of Young Men, Inc.

National League of Young Men, Inc. (NLYM), initially named Beach City Service League, was founded in 2007 in Newport Beach, California by Diane Edmonston and Mary Pat Lucas. Their goal was to provide a unique program of leadership, service, culture and protocol opportunities, for the young men in their community, while at the same time strengthening the mother-son relationship.

NLYM launched its first year with the Newport Mesa Chapter; grades nine and ten, totaling 43 High School Young Men and 42 Mothers. Within two years the Newport Mesa Chapter grew to four classes including grades nine through twelve and a second chapter was started in Greater Orange.

In 2009 when additional communities began asking about how to start a chapter in their area, the name was changed to National League of Young Men, Inc. and a National Board of Directors was created to facilitate the chapters and pursue expansion.

NLYM is committed to providing a quality program and developing long-term partnerships that will provide benefits to not only the young men but also their surrounding communities. National League of Young Men, Inc. aspires to offer gratifying experiences for their young men and to help them learn that the greatest joy in life truly comes from serving others and discovering the confidence and courage to do so.
