Let’s Make the 2019 EDGE Seminar OUTSTANDING! It’s not too late to give!


Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our Giving Tuesday campaign in November – we were able to raise over $6,000 thanks to the generosity of our EDGE family and friends like you! With the funds raised so far, we are able to send 17 students to the annual leadership seminar in 2019 at absolutely no cost to them.

We need your help! It costs $350 to host a student at EDGE and we are looking forward to hosting over 150 students in 2019. Please give your tax-deductible gift today.


In 2018 we hosted 157 students at UC Berkeley and had 96% of students walking out of our seminar feeling like they were a leader. Your support allows us to continue serving future leaders in our community.

Enjoy a glimpse of what our students experienced in 2018 and help us serve even more students in 2019 by giving today!

EDGE Youth Leadership Seminar is provided at no cost to our students.

We believe that students should be able to attend regardless of their financial situation.  We continually reach out to underserved populations, bringing deserving students to the seminar who otherwise would never be able to attend a leadership seminar like ours.

It costs around $70,000 to hold the seminar every year and we rely on your generous contributions to make that happen.  Every dollar raised goes back into future programs, as we are a fully volunteer-run organization.  Your contribution would go towards developing the next generation of EDGE Youth Leadership students.  Additionally, every dollar raised will be matched by Google!  DONATE TODAY

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing with you stories from our Alumni and how EDGE made an impact on their lives.  With your support, we can ensure these stories continue and that next year’s class of students have the same OUTSTANDING experience.

On behalf of the students, staff, and Board of EDGE – thank you for being a part of the EDGE family!
