Domestic Regional Branch Managers
The Regional Branch Managers are the heart and soul of the World Youth Initiative. Many of these dedicated young students organize and implement projects to raise funds for the World Youth Initiative and its beneficiaries. Other students provide free services in their region that would otherwise be unattainable by the target population. Many of these Regional Branch Managers run their own non-profit organizations, which only strengthens the World Youth Initiative network. These managers are strongly encouraged to work with other managers to cut costs and effectively utilize each others' vast array of experiences.
