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
