United Young Leaders
The United Young Leaders (UYL) connects the next generation of local leaders and philanthropists. With United Way of Greater St. Louis, you have the strong partner needed to make a difference on a much larger scale. Through a gift of $25 or more, UYL brings together professionals 35 years old and younger to address the most pressing issues in our community through giving, volunteerism, and professional development.
Volunteering is a powerful way to connect with your community in a whole new way and positively impact the region. United Young Leaders volunteer projects take place quarterly, but you can find many other projects that suit your interests and schedule at www.STLVolunteer.org.
Engage with other young leaders shaping our region through networking and engagement opportunities. We host networking opportunities for members to meet new people, connect with peers within and across industries, and get acquainted with the volunteering and philanthropic scene in St. Louis.
