One thousand strong, our Young Leaders are young, up and coming professionals, 40 years and younger, who invest their time, talent and resources to improve Miami-Dade. Through year-round volunteer activities and events, they are raising awareness and resources to support United Way’s community goals.

Become a Young Leader with an annual gift of $1,000 or more to United Way.

“Through Young Leaders, United Way developed a platform that allows us to give back in a meaningful way, and at the same time grow our careers with like-minded individuals. I love being a part of an organization where people truly care about our community and are committed to leaving their mark. Together, we are setting the tone for Miami’s future.”
Matt Anderson, Co-chair United Way of Miami-Dade Young Leaders
“Young Leaders provides for multiple ways of charitable giving with the added benefit of meeting career focused professionals working for a common good. Through fun and unique events there is room for every level of participation, enabling each member to have a fulfilling experience. Having been born and raised in Miami, it is important to me to be part of an organization that effects real and positive change in our community, and that is exactly what the United Way does.“
Jeffrey Gordon, Co-chair United Way of Miami-Dade Young Leaders
