Each year, United Way California Capital Region asks local organizations to select one or more of their valued employees to participate in the Leaders United Program for an 18-week working session to assist in the annual campaign. Leaders United participants (LU’s) serve as an extension of the United Way Resource Development department and work full time or part time in United Way’s office from late July to early November.
The Leaders United experience provides:
- Awareness of community issues facing the Capital Region and the impact on organizations and future leaders
- Development of a well-rounded understanding of various professional industries through educational classes. Topics include: Marketing, Human Resources, Consulting, Healthcare, Local/State Government, Legal Issues, and Finance
- A mentor from the United Way Board and have regular meetings with the region’s CEOs and top leaders
- Improvement of technical and leadership skills through deep engagement in raising funds for local nonprofits
- The opportunity to stretch outside of comfort zones to work with others, solve problems and drive results
- New insights about trust, authenticity, and character for future leadership growth
Who would be a good candidate for the Leaders United Program?
Participating in the United Way Loaned Executive program has been a wonderful experience, it has opened my eyes to how much work is actually required to build, strengthen, and maintain relationships with companies throughout the United Way campaign. I have enjoyed working with an awesome mentor, Russ Gostage, and all the other amazing staff at United Way! Working to create a campaign with an employee campaign coordinator to collecting pledge forms and donations, has been exciting and informative.
Campaign Coordinators are ambassadors, storytellers and help communicate United Way’s purpose and work in our community. Being an Employee Campaign Coordinator is a big job, and we know you will find the experience to be very rewarding.
