"YLS provides me with opportunity to join forces with other passionate, community leaders to support United Way. Whether we’re volunteering at a local agency, planning a networking event or giving our hard-earned money, we know we’re having an impact that’s greater than any of us could have on our own." -Lauren Chess, Social Subcommittee Chair Join Today
