Young Mens Division

The Young Men’s Division was founded in 1994 in an effort to bring younger community members to support The Guardians and prepare for future leadership. The YMD holds activities geared to their interests as well as providing leadership opportunities and social activities for members in their 20s and 30s.

YOUNG MEN’S DIVISION

The Young Men’s Division (YMD) rocketed to a record breaking year in 2015 with an uptick in net proceeds, members and new programming. Yossi Berrin-Reinstein and Bryan Cohen are commandeering the YMD as Co-Chairmen of the 20+ year organization, establishing a new executive leadership board and some lofty new goals.

"We are taking on new risks as an organization and leveraging off the success of our past events. One focus this year will be on our professional development series, which has become a well attended and well received speaker series" said Berrin-Reinstein

“We are excited and honored to lead the YMD of The Guardians for the next two fiscal years! We will continue to build on our recent momentum and enhance the calendar of events already in place" said Cohen.

The organization recently reached a major milestone through partnering with the Jewish Home for the Aging and adding a young divisions liaison at The Guardian's office. This has given the YMD more resources to put to work and expand our programming. Already, we have created a more aggressive calendar for our parties, and have designed a formal professional development program. This has also helped with direct contributions bringing more needed funds to the Jewish Home. The members of the YMD are exciting for the future!

We had a packed 2015 filled with widely attended parties, successful golf and poker tournaments, professional development events, a year end gala, as well as plenty of activities, such as softball, meet ups, and lively monthly meetings. The YMD meets every first Tuesday of the Month at The Guardians offices at 6.30pm, and all are welcome. Meetings consist of a buffet dinner, open bar and like-minded young professionals working towards a common philanthropic goal.

Berrin-Reinstein and Cohen will tell you that there’s nothing else quite like the YMD in Los Angeles, or anywhere in this country for that matter.
