Young Leaders Society


    Young Leaders Society (YLS) was formed to provide community involvement and personal development opportunities for young professionals. This unique and dynamic group offers its members multiple avenues to become involved with various United Way and community initiatives, to directly make a difference in people's lives, and to ultimately become leaders in our community.

    YLS offers activities that center around three main areas: professional development, philanthropic involvement and networking opportunities. We coordinate many volunteer events, along with various events with topics focused on effective leadership and professional and personal growth.
