Engaging the Next Generation

United Way of Southwest Alabama / Our Work  / Our Programs / Engaging the Next Generation

Engaging the Next Generation​ is a collaborative program that was established in 2008 by Mobile United​ and Mobile County Commissioner Merceria Ludgood- District 1​ to showcase nonprofit organizations in the Mobile area and connect them with the innovators of the next generation. In 2019, UWSWA accepted program management and planning in combination with our Emerging Leaders Affinity Group.

United Way Emerging Leaders are tomorrow’s community leaders and philanthropists. United Way gives them the chance to serve, connect, and grow. Membership benefits include invitations to special Emerging Leaders Society only events, special professional development luncheons with community leaders, hands-on volunteer opportunities, and the ability to connect and engage with other professionals who have the same passion and philanthropic drive. Eligible members are young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who support United Way by making an annual minimum gift of $250 or volunteer 12 hours of community service per year through United Way’s Volunteer Connect.
