Emerging Leaders

Central Oklahoma has a special niche for young adults aspiring to be the leaders of tomorrow.United Way offers young adults contributing at a level of $500 and above a unique opportunity to join their own affinity group, Emerging Leaders. This group not only contributes financially, but is also dedicated to giving back with their time.

Members participate in numerous community volunteer activities throughout the year, including an Easter egg hunt for low-income families, a fall carnival at Special Care and a holiday dance for seniors at Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City’s Trinity Garden Apartments. Emerging Leaders also have the opportunity to network with their peers and learn valuable lessons from community leaders. Through the Lunches with Leaders series, members hear from established business leaders and Partner Agency Directors. 

Becoming a member is quick and easy! Your contribution of $500 or more to United Way gives you immediate access to everything Emerging Leaders has to offer. For a little more than $10 per week, you make a positive impact in your community and your future.
