We Got Next
Posted on 01 June 2017
Why not us…? One question. Three words. That’s all it took to get us started. That was the spark that set us a blaze. And oh what a blaze it ignited. We had no idea what would happen next, how could we?
It seems like only yesterday this was all just some far-fetched idea that existed only in the minds of a misfit group of kids from Solon, Ohio. And yet here we are, 12 months later, surrounded by a community of extraordinary visionaries, servants, and leaders. This started out as us against the world, a group of misfits just out to prove we could do it. And while we still have that same chip on our shoulder, one thing has become apparent over the past year, this is so much bigger than a small group of kids from northeast Ohio. Which is why we are so excited to announce that this June YXU is launching our month long “We Got Next” campaign to highlight the young up and coming leaders that we have been fortunate to connect with over the past year.
Throughout June we will be featuring young leaders who are passionate about solving the biggest challenges facing their communities with the theme of "We Got Next". Throughout June YXU will be featuring a limited edition "We Got Next" shirt and will donate a portion of the sales to The LeBron James Family Foundation, in honor of the one year anniversary of Mr. James fatefully uniting the founders of YXU in Cleveland for the Cavs championship parade.
As always we cannot express how thankful we are for the support and participation we have received from the YXU community. As you know, YXU was sparked by a simple question, "Why not us?"...and a year later we still haven't come up with a good answer. Therefore we will continue to push forward together as the next generation of leaders that will uplift each other and our communities. Let’s show the world how together the YXU community is leaving its mark, and put everyone on notice that #WeGotNext.
