As the next generation of community advocates, Young Leaders provides you with opportunities make meaningful, measurable change. Get involved in this work through our signature event, Read Across America Day (RAAD). Young Leaders chose RAAD because literacy is critical to academic success, improving everything from high school graduation to employment rates. Read Across America Day ensures that all children have access to books – including those that celebrate diversity– and that they discover the importance of reading and the joy and opportunity that comes with it.

“I support United Way because I passionately believe that community change takes a collaborative effort. Young Leaders gave me an opportunity to take my support a step further and to network with like-minded young professionals."

Andrea Allison

"It was really appealing to me to see that United Way was directly involved in our local communities and that I could too be involved in that. I could see my time and my dollars go to impacting the community that I live in, that my family lives in, and that my kids are growing up in."
