Youth Leadership Committee

The Youth Leadership Committee at Beyond Batten Disease Foundation was created in October 2014 in response to the many young philanthropists in our community who wanted to get involved.These young volunteer leaders serve as liaisons to their schools and neighborhoods, helping us grow and accomplish our mission of raising awareness and funds for research to find a cure for juvenile Batten disease. Since inception the committee has grown to over 150 high school students from 10 different Austin-area high schools!
