YOUNG LEADERS

Are you a young professional who wants to make Greensboro a better place?

Young Leader members are emerging community leaders who give back to the community they love.

Focus & Initiatives

Empowering young professionals to give back
Young Leaders volunteer their time to give back in meaningful ways–reading and tutoring, collecting books for children in need, providing family-friendly activities for families. Young Leaders connect hands on with the work of United Way, experience first hand critical issues our community faces, and make change happen.

Trunk or Treat Event
Led by United Way’s Young Leaders, the annual trunk or treat event gathers volunteers and their vehicles–decorated in spooky-fashion–for a fun-filled, family friendly and safe trunk-or-treating activity.

End Poverty: The Brunch Series
Annual Springtime brunch that raises awareness and support to end local poverty. Attendees who purchase tickets are treated to mimosas & brunch stations with shrimp & grits, gourmet waffles, quiche & more. Event offers bingo, jenga & cornhole, and awesome new connections with caring young professionals and others.
