Professional Development Training
Roughly every other month United Way Young Leaders Society hosts professional development training for civic-minded community members. These trainings are often FREE and include lunch or light refreshments and snacks. They take place at both our downtown office, 428 Bull Street, from 12-1pm, and our Effingham County office, 711 Zitterour Drive in Rincon. Featured topics: Team Development, Personal Finance, Conflict Resolution, Networking, Public Speaking, and more.

Service Socials
Quarterly, we’ll gather to lend a hand and often voice to one of our United Way funded agencies. Volunteer with us! We try to plan service socials that are family friendly and open to all skills. If there is an organization or cause close to your heart that you want to get added to the list, please let us know!
