Abstract—The aim of this research is to know the influence of transformational leadership and employee engagement towards citizenship behavior. The paper used sample of youth non-profit organization and the method of analysis was regression. The finding research shows there are positive influence among transformational leadership towards employee engagement, employee engagement towards organizational citizenship behavior (OCB), and transformational leadership towards organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). This study suggests that transformational leadership may be beneficial for nonprofit leaders who want to improve employee engagement in their organizations. Engagement should be positively connected to OCB because employees who are engaged in their job should not only do their formal role requirements, but should also do extra effort to perform other activities outside their main job. Transformational leadership is the creator of change in a particular state by attracting the values of followers and their feelings for a higher purpose. A transformational leader can drive his followers to work beyond the standard. Based on this research, even if someone is not compensated by money in non-profit organization, but with experiences and values, they can still being engaged with the organization and can do their tasks beyond the limit.
