Young Leaders Society

What is the Young Leaders Society?


The Young Leaders Society of Northwest Georgia is a group of tomorrow’s leaders (21-40) passionate about philanthropy, advocacy, volunteerism, and community.

By investing your time, talents, and treasure, you partner with United Way to help make Whitfield and Murray counties the kind of place we all want to live, work, and raise our families.

Young Leaders are there first - to volunteer, to engage, to take action.

It offers social, educational, and service opportunities for all its members.

The Society not only allows you to expand your knowledge of your community but allows you to build contacts within it as well.
