Getting good people together to do good!

Young Leaders United offers you the chance to network with others like you who want to share their talents, expand their skills and experience, and make an impact in their community. YLU is for the twenty and thirty somethings, those looking to meet new peers, those looking to bring their kids to some fun events, and for everyone who believes in engaging the next group of community leaders.

With mulitple events throughout the year, there are ways to grow your professional network, connect with philanthropic executives, volunteer and demonstrate the importance of giving back.

Engaging with YLU is easy - all we need is your email address and you'll recieve invitations to YLU events and opportunities! Joining is easy too! Membership is an annual gift or pledge of $100 or more to United Way of Porter County. If you give through a workplace campaign, make sure you note YLU on your pledge form in the space provided. Please be sure to fill out all contact information so we can connect. You can even give online, right now, here!
