Emerging Leaders

United Way of Greater Waterbury Emerging Leaders

The United Way of Greater Waterbury Emerging Leaders is a network of young professionals who live or work in the 10-town region and share a passion to enrich our community. The group provides a platform to impact change throughout our community and to grow personally, professionally and socially through volunteer opportunities, fundraisers and professional development.

Members can get involved throughout the year through several volunteering, fundraising and professional development opportunities that we will be hosting. We encourage our emerging leaders to not only attend various events, but participate in planning or leading through sub-committees. We also welcome ideas for future initiatives that we can develop or take part in within our community.

Volunteer Opportunities

Learn about our community, the need within it and what others have done to make a difference. We encourage our members to roll up their sleeves, get out in the community and make an impact by volunteering their time at one of our many opportunities throughout the year.


Our members will be involved in fundraising efforts for our community needs. From Camp Fire Yoga and spin-a-thons to wine tastings and paint parties, members are encouraged to participate in the planning and execution of fundraising through sub-committees.

Professional Development

Emerging Leaders fosters professional growth through leadership development opportunities, such as development workshops, seminars and networking events to expand personal and professional connections.
