National League of Young Men, Newport Mesa, is the founding chapter of an organization first known as Beach City Service League (BCSL), founded in January 2007 by Newport Beach residents Diane Edmonston and Mary Pat Lucas. BCSL’s first year consisted of two classes of 43 young men and their mothers, and has grown to include four classes of young men in grades 9 through 12, a total of over 250 members. With a second chapter operating in Orange, Ca., and the desire to expand further, in September of 2011 we voted to change our name to the National League of Young Men.

Our members have volunteered for causes ranging from Special Olympics, The American Cancer Society, Second Harvest Food Bank, High Hopes and The U.S. Army to local soup kitchens, fire stations, senior centers, and youth groups. Young men also attend meetings, during which they learn important life skills such as time management, leadership, relationship building and protocol. They hold positions on their board of directors each year and learn valuable skills in communications, team building and follow-through. At the end of four years, our Young Men members are well-rounded individuals who have developed leadership skills, distinctive manners and compassion for their community.


The NLYM, Newport Mesa Chapter members volunteered to date over 22,000 since January 2007, with 5,789 hours in 2015-2016, alone.

The Newport Mesa Chapter has a total of 308 members including Young Men, Mothers, Sustaining Young Men and Mothers, and Honorary Life Time Members.
