Musicians are well suited for becoming leaders, not only in their ensemble but out in the community. The ESYO Young Leaders Program ignites the passions of young musicians, connecting them with service-oriented mentors who nurture their personal development and cultivate their leadership potential. While ESYO mentors open doors, give advice and share experiences, the next generation gains hands-on experience, observes, and engages in youth-led projects that serve the community.
Now in its third season, ESYO is proud to welcome twenty-four new leaders and twenty-four dedicated mentors to the program. Our mentors come from all walks of life and represent a diverse array of occupations and associations. The roster includes professors, artists, musicians, teachers, engineers, and many former ESYO musicians.
