Who We Are

We’re a passionate group of United Way donors ages 21-40 who work to ensure that everyone has a safe place to call home, every child succeeds in school and everyone has access to quality health care.

YLS donors are not only exposed to the needs of our community through United Way and its many nonprofit partners, but are also deeply engaged with active young professionals who are eager to help others in need while experiencing personal growth.

At nearly 500 strong, we believe that collectively, we can do more.

Join us as we plug in and lead on.
