UPSTARTERSSM

UPSTARTERS is a new youth volunteer engagment opportunity that gives local youth exposure to the role they can play in addressing community needs. Rather than hoping that youth learn about volunteerism or philanthropy by the time they are adults, UPSTARTERS provides opportunities today. UPSTARTERS is focused on the future generation of the United Way learning to lead now.

 

UPSTARTERS is driven by the area’s young leaders. They identify what community issues to address. They get friends and classmates together to help. They influence where impact dollars should be placed.
