Established in 2011, Emerging Leaders for Children’s (ELC) is a leadership development board of accomplished business professionals, physicians, and community volunteers in their 30s to early 40s. Under the oversight of the Children's Foundation Board of Trustees, ELC's mission is to advance the vision of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta by engaging the community, raising awareness and funds, and growing the next generation of volunteer leaders.

Regular business meetings, networking opportunities with Trustees and executives, volunteer engagement with patients, and member socials make for a meaningful ELC experience for approximately 30 standing members. ELC is no longer accepting applications for 2019 membership. The application for 2020 membership will be available Jan. 2019.

The Scrubs Party

Core to ELC is the group's signature fundraising event, Scrubs Party, hosted each spring in support of a program at Children’s as voted upon by the group. The sold-out 2018 Scrubs Party presented by Rogers was a huge success, raising nearly $400,000 for the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. To date, ELC has raised more than $1.25 million for Children's. In past years, ELC has funded for the Concussion Program, Robotics Center, Child Protection Program, ECMO Center and Neurosciences program. ELC also helped launch Children's childhood obesity prevention campaign in metro Atlanta.

The sixth annual Scrubs Party will be held on April 13, 2019 at the Rooftop Terrace at Ponce City Market.
