The Emerging Leaders program was developed to engage young leaders with United Way and connect them to the community. Emerging Leaders are a diverse group of individuals aged 21-45 who make a contribution to United Way. Various social, volunteer and educational opportunities are available through Emerging Leaders. Emerging Leaders benefit from a strong sense of pride that comes from knowing that you make a difference in our community.
Community Involvement as an Emerging Leaders includes:
Making an investment through United Way demonstrates your commitment to making a difference in your community. With a pledge of $25 or more, you will be recognized as a member of the Emerging Leader Society.
A variety of leadership, social and community service activities are offered to individuals and groups of Emerging Leaders. You can give your gift of time, talent, and expertise.
Participate in nonprofit board of directors training sessions-L.I.N.C. Leaders Investing in the Nonprofit Community. These sessions will equip you with the skills and knowledge to be an effective board member. Opportunities to serve on United Way and other local nonprofit boards and committees are available to you.
Here's your chance to network on a personal and professional level. Emerging Leaders provides you with the oppotunity to meet people that share a mutual concern for what matters in the community. Network with local community leaders, service providers and other Emerging Leaders at a variety of events throughout the year.
