Emerging Community Leaders Have Many Benefits

The Salina Area United Way is always looking for volunteers who plan ahead and want to make a difference in our community.  Volunteers will learn about civic leadership and management across all community sectors.   United Way is about balancing self-centered personal interest and alturisum for the good of all.  To help cultivate balanced community leaders the United Way has developed an annual process for nurturing Emerging Community Leaders.

Emerging Community Leader Volunteer OpportunityPromote strengthening our Salina area community by practicing leadership, partnership and resource development by working for four (4) to eight (8) hours a month for six (6) to nine (9) months of the year in networking and supporting Salina Area United Way staff and volunteers in achieving strategic vision for 2020.  

As a leadership organization Salina Area United Way starts with why this program is so important and has so many benefits to our community.  We look at this as a Win-Win-Win-Win arrangement.
