Young Leaders Society

957 Members


United Way Young Leaders Society is focused on raising the quality of life for all in Greenville County through philanthropy and action.

This network of community leaders under 40 offers unique educational and networking events, hands-on volunteer projects and innovative leadership training. You can join this group of young professionals through an annual gift of $1,000 ($500 for those under 30) to United Way of Greenville County.



Wake Up Greenville: A quarterly breakfast series highlighting different community issues and programs. This series aims to deepen your understanding of the work of United Way of Greenville County and provides the chance to network with other young leaders.

The Great Conversation: The Great Conversation seeks to connect young professionals with influential community leaders and United Way advocates. Through these conversations, we hope to foster powerful dialogue around philanthropy and civic engagement—and how giving back to our community can positively influence your career. Dinner will include a three-course meal and two drinks.

Volunteer Meetups: We meet monthly for hands-on volunteer projects to give back to the community we all call home. Check out our newsletter for upcoming projects. Popular opportunities include United Way's annual School Tools program, Downtown Alive and Born Learning Trail installation and maintenance.

Socials: We host casual social gatherings, like cornhole tournaments and trivia nights, as well as our big annual celebration, to promote connection with other community-minded young professionals and celebrate our contributions to the annual United Way campaign.

YLS Annual Golf Tournament: YLS hosts a golf tournament each year to benefit the United Way of Greenville County annual campaign. This year's Fall in the Cup Classic will be held on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at
Green Valley Country Club. Find more information here.
