Advocate & Learn

We are a champion for the community, so we take pride in educating the community about important issues. From leadership and board development, to poverty simulations and training seminars for local nonprofits, United Way strives to strengthen our community impact work through educational opportunities.

Leadership and Board Development

Governance Academy is an in-depth education program designed to help prepare you for volunteer leadership within United Way. Accepted candidates will be invited to participate in seven monthly education sessions designed to educate in all aspects of the operations of United Way and the governance responsibilities and obligations that leadership on behalf of United Way entails.

Poverty Simulations

This interactive event allows participants to experience what life is like for struggling families. It is a one-of-a-kind experience that allows poverty to be viewed from a different perspective. 

Training Seminars

We’re proud to be a community resource for a variety of training events, including how to become an Employee Campaign Manager, speaker training, and a variety of community impact sessions and seminars throughout the year.
