DLC Young Executives

The David Lawrence Center Young Executives was formed in August 2010. The group is composed of a younger generation of advocates for mental health and substance misuse awareness. Their primary goal is to spread awareness throughout the younger demographic of Southwest Florida and continue to improve the lives of over 50,000 individuals every year through the Center’s prevention, intervention, and treatment services.

The Young Executives host several social events each year, including their annual Sunset Cruise aboard the Naples Princess and their signature annual Chip In for DLC Golf Tournament. The recently launched Elevate Wellness Series consists of quarterly wellness events aimed to elevate personal health and wellbeing, while also promoting awareness of mental health and substance use disorders within our community. Elevate events include fitness boot camps, yoga classes, and healthy cooking demonstrations.

All proceeds from these events benefit the mission, operations, and expansion of the Center’s comprehensive inpatient, outpatient, and community-based prevention and treatment services. All DLC Young Executive events are open to the community.
