What Is YOL?


YOL is a corporate learning and wellbeing company.

Our programs combine wellbeing training, mindfulness and resilience training, and service engagement as a foundation for highly impactful leadership development.

Our mission is to nourish and ignite. Our vision is to live in a more conscious, connected, and generous world.

Drawing on evidence-based science, our programs are offered online, offline, on-site and off-site, and designed to elevate compassion, performance, and productivity.

Companies work with YOL to successfully address burnout and stress; accelerate the development of high potential talent; align diverse and distributed teams for success; and prepare the next generation of women in leadership, among other use cases.

In addition, we work hand in hand with local community-based organizations on issues of poverty, health and environmental preservation. We cultivate long-term partnerships and skill transfers between our participants, our service partners, and members of the community.

Customer Testimonials

I can’t imagine anyone leaving here and not feeling more connected to themselves, more passionate about what their work is and more ready to go.

Karen Hershenson, Learning & Development Leader, Innovation, Procter & Gamble

“My experience with YOL taught me to stretch personally and professionally while continuing to be my authentic self"

Elizabeth Pierce, Global Director of Learning + Development, Eventbrite

It was an outstanding experience with a great bunch of people. I was asked to describe the experience for (my company’s) website. And of course that just extended the experience mentally for me just a bit longer, stretching that soul-satisfying feeling a few more days.

Robert Mayer, Senior Systems Specialist, Genentech

I was amazed at how open and vulnerable the group was and how open and vulnerable I was…it was eye-opening

Michelle Dakin, Senior Talent and Experience Lead,

Service Approach

Our approach to service is rooted in three central themes, with one primary objective: Lasting impact

Self-Awareness & Education: Meaningful service work begins by looking within and asking ourselves: “Why do I want to volunteer?” and “What do I know about the issues we’ll address through service?”
Direct Service Projects: Empowered with our collective skills and knowledge, we engage in on-site service projects geared towards meeting the immediate needs and long-term goals of our partner organizations.
Reflection: Sharing our insights, we come together to consider the following: “What did we learn about ourselves, others, the world?” and “How can we continue to support the needs of the community and service partner?”
