Give back with fellow young professionals at these group volunteer projects. Learn about the issues of homelessness, child education and poverty while helping to create change and build connections.


Connect with like-minded young professionals at casual networking events. Enjoy food, drink and a chance to meet new people. You’ll also hear a quick inspirational story about the work United Way is doing in Seattle and have a chance to support it right then and there.


We’ve all been through rough patches in our lives, and sometimes the support of others is all it takes to get things back on track. With United Way, I get the chance to be that support for someone else—there’s something galvanizing about people coming together to help others and achieve success.”
—MARK CHEN, Turner Construction, United Way Emerging Leader and leadership-level giver
