Young Leaders Society



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

The United Way recently hosted a celebration of their Young Leader Society by inviting the group and some of their mentors to gather at the beautiful Vintage at the Avenue. Drinks and appetizers were enjoyed while the group visited and networked. Head MTSU Women’s Basketball Coach Rick Insell addressed the group.

The purpose of the group is to harness the power of those 40 and younger to make a difference. Members connect to their communities and each other through special events like this one
and volunteer projects. If you are looking to network with new people, become a better leader, or make a personal commitment to your community, join United Way’s Young Leader Society.

Young Leaders who make a minimum annual gift of $500 to United Way, are invited to participate in Young Leader Society events and engagements throughout the year.
