We are excited and grateful that Mora has accepted the position as our new ED of YCS. She brings a lot of energy and passion for interacting with youth. We look forward to working with Mora as our new leader. We will miss Leif, but we know he has been looking forward to spending more time with his wife and grandchildren. I am excited for him as he moves on to new adventures and another stage of his life.

Huge thanks to Leif for his steady, compassionate leadership of YCS for so many years. He has always been a class act, and he will be missed. Best wishes to Mora as she steps into this new role.
