Young Leaders Society

The Young Leaders Society is United Way's affinity group for professionals who invest in the community and are actively seeking ways to Connect, Serve & Lead to make a positive and lasting impact throughout Southern Arizona.

Connect events allow members to network with other young professionals, prominent community leaders and like-minded philanthropists.
Serve events offer YLS members the opportunity to give back to the community in an impactful and meaningful way at various agencies throughout Southern Arizona.
Lead events are opportunities for YLS members to expand their personal capacity in potential leadership roles and opportunities for growth. 
YLS's Serve focus is Youth On The Rise (YOTR), an initiative for opportunity youth ages 16-24 who have dropped out of high school and are not working.  For more information on YOTR click here.
