“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
I am inspired every time I hear the quote above from pioneering female anthropologist, Margaret Mead. It reminds me of the United Way Young Leaders, who have committed to giving, advocating and volunteering to change our community and our region. We are that small group of thoughtful committed citizens, who are going to change the world and it starts right here in our community. As United Way learns, leads and unites our region, engaged community members, like Young Leaders, are a critical component of the United Way movement to create lasting community change. The Steering Committee members have stepped up to lead our movement over the next year. And that’s a big job to do. We are hoping all of you, United Way Young Leaders, will thank and support them along the way. Not a United Way Young Leader yet? Join us today.
