Young Leaders Society

United Way's Young Leaders Society (YLS) is designed for a new generation of community leaders who understand that educational change in Erie County DOES happen.

YLS offers this dynamic group of professionals a combination of educational, social, and volunteer activities focused on our community. These activities foster personal and professional growth.

  • The Young Leaders Society was established in October 2003.
  • YLS members are United Way donors 45 years old or younger giving $500 or above
  • And, individuals under the age of 30 giving $250 or above

When you become a Young Leader, you are helping United Way on their mission to CRUSH POVERTY in Erie County.
