Emerging Leaders

What do you fight for?

The mission of the United Way Emerging Leaders (EL) is to engage, inspire, educate, and empower young professionals in the Greater Boston area to make a difference through volunteerism, advocacy, and philanthropy. Membership provides many opportunities throughout the year to strengthen personal professional connections, learn about relevant social issues and participate in on-the-ground volunteerism that promotes change. Emerging Leaders makes it fun and easy for young Bostonians to fight for worthy causes in our community.

Help feed 18,000 families this Thanksgiving!

Food insecurity in Massachusetts doubled during COVID-19, with more than 19% of households across the state struggling to put food on the table during the peak of the pandemic. Thanks to our amazing community, last year we blew past our goal.

This year, we’re going even bigger. While we’re on the road to recovery, we have a long way to go and too many families are still unable to make ends meet. With your support, we’re making sure every family in our community has food for the week of Thanksgiving.
