What is Youth United?
Youth United (YU) is your source for high school student-centered volunteer opportunities. Led by a student council, Youth United offers unique and impactful service projects that improve the lives of children and families in Whitfield and Murray Counties. Join Youth United and others who have a passion for giving back. Youth United develops and nurtures the next generation of philanthropic leaders by creating unique leadership and community engagement opportunities for youth in grades 9-12.
• Work with a team of like-minded teens and give back through fun volunteer projects while making a difference you can see in your own community.
• Align with the United Way brand while you find your passion and work with a supportive group of community leaders who will connect you with the skills and knowledge you need to begin your own leadership and community engagement journey.
Youth United is exclusive to high school students who have a passion for serving the community and want to develop leadership skills by giving back within the two counties served by United Way of Northwest Georgia.
