Are you a YMBL alumni who is still passionate about supporting YMBL's outstanding programs? If so consider this: Over the years there have been countless hours donated by hundreds of YMBL members to create, fund, and assist with the oversight of the Austin Sunshine Camps. Without the effort of all of these members, the Austin Sunshine Camps would not exist and would never have reached today's level of success.
We have created a new Alumni YMBL membership (only $100 annual dues)
to provide more opportunities for past members to get together, catch up, and revive old friendships and memories. Moreover, the alumni membership will allow people to stay connected to the Austin Sunshine Camps and follow our progress as we strengthen the legacy established by past generations of YMBL members.
For the Sunshine Camps, Alumni Membership is particularly special as it defines us; it embodies our institutional memory, and represents the heart and soul of who we are. For this reason we have designated the Austin YMBL Sunshine Foundation as the recipient of Alumni Membership dues. Created in 1993 by YMBL alumni, the Sunshine Foundation supports the camps through scholarships, an endowment, and a facilities fund.
- One free ticket to our annual alumni event, the YMBL Legacy Bash.
- Invitations to YMBL events throughout the year, including the Austin Under 40 Awards, the Spring and Fall Flings, YMBL Luncheons, Summer Camp events, and many others opportunities.
- The YMBL Alumni newsletter, which will provide updates of the YMBL, and upcoming events. This will include the Sunshine Camp newsletter, which will provide you with all the latest on the camps.
- Ability to connect with current YMBL members and Alumni through our online directory, discussion boards, and job forum.
