Opportunity for professional development, networking, and community engagement Posted on Tuesday, 18 April 2023

The Leadership Development Programs at United Way are now accepting applications for the 2023 class year. These programs include the Latino Leadership Program, African American Leadership Program, Emerging Leaders Program, and the PRIDE Leadership Program. The application deadline is May 31, 2023.

United Way’s Leadership Development Programs promote the placement of African Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ+ individuals, and young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 40, in board and leadership positions across the region. Each participant is given the opportunity to enhance individual and professional skills, expand connections through networking, and create authentic communities of belonging and inclusion. Graduates of these diverse programs gain the confidence, mindset, and skillset to join local community boards, take on policy-making positions, advance their professional careers, and make impactful changes in the community.

If you enjoy engaging and learning with diverse, traditionally underrepresented groups, and like-minded individuals with a desire to enhance your organization and impact the community, I hope you consider United Way’s unique leadership programs. Upon completion, you will join the more than 2,000+ program alumni who are making way for good,” says Dr. Sheila Strong, Director of Leadership Development and Equity.

Apply now to be part of our Fall 2023 cohort. The tuition is $399 and partial scholarship assistance is available with demonstrated financial need.
