Young Leaders | United Way of Greater Greensboro


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. 

Young Leaders (YL) is comprised of caring young professionals under 40, who contribute $120 or more annually to advance the work of United Way of Greater Greensboro.

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.

Annual 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. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, October 27.

Professional Development
United Way has been working for those in need in our community for 95 years. During that time, we have built strong relationships with top corporate and community leaders. United Way Young Leaders gain valuable knowledge and insight through networking and professional development opportunities with Greater Greensboro’s business leaders.
