Young Leaders Society


Who We Are:

The Young Leaders Society* is comprised of young professionals with a passion for partnership in community building and outreach.

*YLS works with individuals 40 and younger


YLS works to connect young professional with volunteering and networking opportunities in the community. With a strong focus on planning bi-annual events for our Small Business Partnership member, hosting community fundraisers and volunteering opportunities with our agency partners.

What We Do:

YLS presents a two pronged focus of outreach among the community. Firstly, and most importantly, YLS works to give back to those who give back, with biannual Days of Doing. This philanthropic event provides service to UW partner agencies that are serving our community day in and day out. Through this event we hope to brighten the work spaces and lives of those working alongside the United Way to build a stronger community.


Come connect with other young community emerging leaders in philanthropy and business.



Days of Doing

Days of Doing was created in 2010 to promote the spirit and value of volunteerism, increase the awareness of local service agencies, and demonstrate what people, working together for the community’s good, can accomplish. YLS will host 2 Days of Doing volunteer opportunities.
