“It was amazing to see so many young professionals donate their time to be a part of something so important. Connect for Good is a unique experience, and I would encourage more Emerging Leaders 365 to participate!”

—Asma Ahmed | United Way of King County

“Connect for Good was uniquely rewarding because about 20 of us in Emerging Leaders 365 committed to three scheduled activities over three weeks. Together, we learned in educational sessions and discussions about the historical context of poverty in Seattle.”

—Chris Partridge

“Connect For Good was a wonderful, empowering exercise in community building and hands-on engagement. By combining in-depth education with clear, actionable steps, our group of 20 was able to raise nearly $6,000 in a few weeks.”

—Mark Routon | Pellego

“Connect for Good was much more than your traditional volunteer experience. Participants expanded their knowledge of how breaking the cycle of poverty relates to higher education in King County and got to meet like-minded individuals that are passionate about service.”

—Adam Harrell | Microsoft
