Welcome to Impact Frisco

Mothers & Sons Serving Together to Impact Their Local Community

Welcome to the Impact Frisco Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League. We have been making a difference in our community since 2013. 

The four years of high school go by incredibly fast. Finding time to spend together with your teenage son gets harder and harder. When you join YMSL, you commit to spending quality time together with your son serving your community. Click here to see media coverage of one of our recent philanthropy events.

In these moments, your son sees your dedication to serving others. You see his eyes and heart become open to the world around him. These are memories to last a lifetime and service projects that impact our community forever.

In addition to service, YMSL offers valuable leadership opportunities and a four-year curriculum that covers topics such as car repair, interview skills, cooking, hazing prevention, and more.

We hope you will consider joining us. The time to start the membership process is during your son’s 8th-grade year. We look forward to meeting you and serving together. Scroll down for more details.
